June 25th, 2024


Ten emerging technologies must be on the radar of every company. In this report, we include four short-term technologies — generative AI (genAI) for visual content, genAI for language, IoT security, and TuringBots — that can deliver benefits quickly. We also include four medium-term technologies — AI agents, autonomous mobility, edge intelligence, and quantum security — that will take two to five more years to deliver expected benefits. Lastly, we maintain our position on two long-term technologies — extended reality (XR) and Zero Trust edge — both of which present big potential benefits and substantial risks. Read this report to understand the benefit horizons and use cases for each technology before you consider deeper investigation and potential adoption.
