In this Podcast Bilal and Maseeh discuss the five technologies that are going to fundamentally reshape business and society in the next five years.
Some of IBM’s leading researchers shared their thoughts on this at IBM’s annual Think conference, which was held in San Francisco this year.
A key part of the annual Think conferences is IBM’s “5 in 5” technology predictions, where the tech giant showcases some of the biggest breakthroughs coming out of their research facilities around the world, presented by the people working at those research centres.
This year’s predictions are all related to challenges presented by the world’s ever-growing population, with the global population expected to cross the 8 billion mark within five years.

He sums up these new innovations as going “from seed to harvest to shelf, table and recycling.”
