Each of our top 17 trends are analyzed and supported with key predictions and the expected impact of those predictions.
Sensor technologies are already signaling transformation across different applications and are expected to bring changes more significantly in the future. Innovative sensor technology is expected to disrupt existing business models and applications. Industries are continuously intermingling with one another to develop innovative products and services to satisfy the discerning needs of consumers. Regulations play a vital role in the adoption of technology, especially drone and energy-harvesting technologies. Therefore, it’s imperative that companies review their portfolio and build their innovation pipeline of sensor technologies and customized products to be ready for the future in line with regulations, and consumer and business demands.
Industries are continuously intermingling to develop innovative products and services to satisfy the discerning needs of consumers. This convergence of industries may potentially disrupt existing business models and applications. Technologies, especially material technologies, act as key facilitators for the transforming innovation ecosystem. Therefore, it is imperative that companies review their portfolio and build their innovation pipeline of material technologies and customized products to be ready for future convergence and collaboration trends. The webinar will discuss key trends that are driving material innovations across different industries and focus on the emerging opportunities for materials across applications.
The battery sector was stunned with the news of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones catching fire or exploding in September 2016, and was further shaken when the replacement smartphones suffered similar fates. Such developments underline the new territory that advanced battery designs are venturing into, where the slightest defect may have catastrophic consequences. Scientists and researchers are thus compelled to improve upon existing battery technologies, where batteries will have to meet ever-increasing demands for high power density, good lifecycle, long shelf life, low cost, and safety.
Technologies never remain in silos; they intermingle with one another to form innovative scenarios that may potentially disrupt existing business models and applications. For example, technologies such as Smart Haptics, 5G Networks, Surgical Robots, Artificial Intelligence and XaaS could combine to generate an innovative business scenario, “Haptic-enabled Remote Robotic Surgeries,” that may possibly disrupt the healthcare industry. For business executives and R&D organizations, these scenarios usher in innovation for their strategic business planning and help them stay ahead in the market. The webinar also discusses some of the key initiatives enabling the convergence of emerging technologies.
In an inter-connected world where technology has no boundaries, two or more emerging technologies across industries may converge in various scenarios, leading to unexplored applications or business models. For example, technologies like next-generation stem cells, additive manufacturing and nano-coatings may converge to give rise to "personalized cosmeceuticals," which are cosmetics customized based on phenotype and genotype of the user. Unexplored business models like these may become the next disruptive billion-dollar idea for investors, corporate executives and R&D professionals. The webinar will discuss key trends that drive these convergence scenarios and potential market challenges that should be noted while considering these opportunities.
Movies have created much hype around artificial intelligence, which has distorted the understanding of the technology for people, businesses, and government. Most people picture a dystopian society when they think about artificial intelligence, but the truth is light years away from this notion. In reality, the true capabilities of AI devices don’t meet general expectations. But in the past decade, the industry has witnessed significant development in terms of technology and the skills that are pushing the boundaries of AI capabilities. Newer innovations in machine learning algorithms (deep learning) and computing technologies (neuromorphic or quantum computing) show promise for AI. But is the public or government ready for this future? Are businesses aware of what needs to be done to become AI ready?
Nepal’s growth story is likely to be shaped by rising urbanization, growing renewable energy development, and greater transport infrastructure development over the next few years. Investors could look to tap into opportunities across sectors such as hydropower and manufacturing, with the government seeking to utilize the significant untapped hydropower potential, and with the development of special economic zones likely to take on greater shape moving ahead. Featuring commentary from the Nepal government, Frost & Sullivan Senior Partners, as well as the private sector in Nepal, this webinar will enable you to gain deeper insights into the future of Nepal, national priorities, investment opportunities, and success stories of local companies as well as multinational corporations.
