There were various updates and the last update was in January of 2017.
I need to update and alter the January 2017 forecast andI will shift from calling it Mundane Singularity to Next Big Futures (Emerged Super technology or trillion dollar impacts). Therefore, to be included on the list something has to be a super-technology that will be emerging or in the some process of emergence or it has trillion or multi-trillion dollar impact.
I will drop memristors from the list as it is not tracking to trillion dollar impact and if it has uses for simulating synapses then it will be included in Artificial intelligence and neuromorphic systems.
1. Blockchain, cryptocurrency and Fintech [trillion dollar impact and super technology aspects]
I added blockchain, cryptocurrency and fintech to the list. Cryptocurrencies are already $150-200 billion. They are already big and will get bigger as in multi-trillion of dollar overall cryptocurrency markets by 2027 and massive industry and globally impacting blockchain applications.
