ICS Zone – 5 technologies that will change the way we live within 5 years

BM Research recently released its 5 in 5 predictions: 5 future innovations that will impact our lives within 5 years. Their predictions are all based around the idea that computers of the imagefuture will not only store your data, but analyze it and start to learn in order to better help you. Part of me is hesitant, because isn\’t this is exactly the type of thing that 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Terminator have been warning us about for years? But I\’ll admit, if even one of these predictions comes true in the next 5 years, the world will be better off.
