35 People, Places & Things That Will Shape the Future
A glimpse at the hot technologies expected during the next 35 years--what's coming down the pike, and how we might begin to make sense of it.
MANHASSET, N.Y. -- Thirty-five years ago, EE Times began covering the electronics industry from the engineer's perspective. We've chronicled the rise of integrated circuits and the disruptions they have wrought, analyzing the design and engineering revolutions that have forever changed communications, computing and consumer technology.
And just as the industry (and our coverage of it) has grown beyond Silicon Valley to Asia and Europe over the years, the marketplace of ideas has expanded as well, to encompass such issues as intellectual property and privacy rights, fair use and open source.
Electronics engineers can no longer content themselves with tending to the cozy business of circuit design. The same goes for EE Times. We are witnessing the integration of technology with society--industry and commerce, private life and even politics--to an unprecedented degree.
In this special report and gallery, we offer a glimpse of the next 35 years--what's coming down the pike, and how we might begin to make sense of it. As an extra added attraction, we took a look back, too, at a report we did about 10 years ago: "40 forces that will shape the semiconductor industry." In "Ten Years After: Hits and Misses," we revisit some of those predictions to see how we did. As would be expected, we hit some and missed some. Enjoy.
