5 in 5 - Five Innovations That Will Change Our Lives Within Five Years

Andrea Martin


Every year IBM Research publishes the "5 in 5", five innovations that will most likely change our lives within the next five years. In 2021, the vision behind the "5 in 5" is to radically accelerate the process of discovery for a sustainable future.
The "5 in 5" are all about
Capturing and transforming CO2 to mitigate climate change;
Modeling Mother Nature to feed a growing citizenry while reducing carbon emissions;
Rethinking batteries before we have to rethink our world;
Sustainable materials, sustainable products, sustainable planet;
Learning from our past for a healthier future.

This presentation will discuss each of the five innovations, encourage the participants to think "outside the box", and envision a more sustainable, healthy and safe future worth living in.
