WHAT IS IT?
The Ark Big Ideas 2022 report has suggested some possible convergences and their specific applications. For instance, a mixture of robotics, battery technologies, Web 3.0, Blockchain, the Metaverse, and artificial intelligence can be leveraged to decrease the cost of transportation activities. Similarly, next-generation DNA sequencing, artificial intelligence, and gene therapies can together lead to better healthcare. At the same time, the convergence of application programming interfaces, social platforms, and blockchain technology could help cut out the middleman and allow for direct business collaboration between firms and markets.
The report, along with having a bullish prediction of the total enterprise value of “disruptive innovation technologies” rising from $14 trillion in 2020 to $210 trillion in 2030, also identified several technologies we may see in the future.
