What innovations are leaping out of the labs to shape the world in powerful ways? Identifying those compelling innovations is the charge of the Meta-Council on Emerging Technologies, one of the World Economic Forum’s network of expert communities that form the Global Agenda Councils, which today released its Top 10 List of Emerging Technologies for 2015. This year, our Meta-Council chair is Bernard Meyerson, chief innovation officer of IBM; I serve Vice-Chair.
