The term emerging technologies refers to any technology that is significantly different to that which exists today. It is the part of the technology industry that pushes the boundaries by evolving existing ideas, converging current technology, and making scientific breakthroughs. Some of the most exciting emerging technologies are in the health sector. They include 3D printers that can make body parts, powered exoskeletons and genome editing. Virtual reality technologies are set to break new ground in education, keyboards are likely to become a thing of the past with brain-controlled computers, and regular advances are being made in the field of artificial intelligence.
