Smart City (from scratch) Project Underway in the USA.

Yahoo recently reported that Bill Gates had purchased 25,000 Arizona acres to build a 'Smart City.'  There is little doubt that a program or overall project manager will be put in place.  This will be the culmination of multiple technologies, industries and professions and could last upwards of a decade.  A few of the emerging technologies that are likely to be a part of this program/project have been briefly covered here on the Emerging Technology Blog and in my articles.  In the coming months more of the emerging technologies that are likely to be a part of this initiative will be presented here.

Corporate New Year's Resolution?

Categories: Emerging Technology

Traditionally, many people make at least one New Year’s resolution.  A recent corporate interaction makes me wonder if that is becoming a tradition for corporations.  At an executive briefing, a few attendees talked about a growing concern they have about emerging technology.  When you look at the number of interesting/valuable emerging technologies and the estimated size of that market segment, which certainly is becoming an increasingly challenging issue for many businesses.  That also impact program and project management.  After thinking about this interaction, I found a study that found that 63 percent of managers feel their organizations adopt new technology too slowly.

Is that one of the many New Year’s resolutions corporate executives have for 2018?

Very interesting development

Now this is interesting.  Researchers at Harvard developed a remarkable new battery technology.  This new development allows the batteries to run for over a month!  Now that is disruption. 

The consumer market is projected to top US$43 billion by 2022.  Think about the dramatic changes to the market.

The question of the day- How many Gigs are you wearing?

Categories: Emerging Technology

An article in Scientific American asked the question:

How Many Gigs Are You Wearing?

They went on to explain that magnetic clothing (MC) could be coming to a clothing retailer near you.  The MC could be used to store user names, passwords and other important commonly used data.  Hope it has cyber security measures figured out!!

So now the second big question:  Anyone have that on their radar for future projects?
