SOME KEYS TO PREDICTING THE FUTURE OF TECHNOLOGY
The future spend in R&D of billions of dollars on the development and use of key technologies will shape our future, claims Forbes contributor Greg Satell are trends that will drive the future with interfaces that we will not have to touch to interact with.
