Learn about the 10 technologies of the future that will mark the course of humanity

Discover the humanitarian and environmental potential of emerging technologies.

News and trends

Do you think we are already starting to reach the peak of technology? Nothing could be further from the truth, all the technological changes in which we are participants are only the beginning of a new scenario in which we have still only seen the dawn. We are at the beginning of a new era in which technology and humans will end up merged and in which we will have to work side by side to achieve the greatest successes of humanity, which have nothing to do with a fourth industrial revolution, but with objectives as ambitious as the eradication of hunger in the world, the stopping of climate change and the accessibility to healthcare and drinking water from all corners of the world. However, these and other goals can only be achieved with the help of cutting-edge technology, so it would not be encouraging for our survival to refuse change and the acquisition of new skills.

In this post, we will analyze the 10 technologies of the future that will help us progress as a society. Keep reading and join this exciting journey to the future!

Discover the 10 technologies that emerge as the engine of the future

From artificial intelligence to space exploration, technological innovation shapes the course of our lives and promises solutions to our most pressing challenges. Its central role highlights the importance of embracing and understanding these tools to ensure a more advanced and sustainable tomorrow. Let’s get to know the technologies that are the protagonists of change!

Quantum computing

Quantum computing, based on principles of quantum mechanics, uses qubits to perform calculations at a speed exponentially faster than classical computers. This advance promises to transform industries and address humanitarian, social and environmental challenges, such as, for example, in the medical field, where it promises to accelerate research into novel medicines.

Socially, it could improve communications security; while, from a sustainable perspective, it could optimize supply chains.

Although still in development, quantum computing aims to be a revolutionary tool, showing the potential to positively transform the world in various aspects.

Production optimized by artificial intelligence

Production optimized by artificial intelligence involves the application of advanced algorithms to improve efficiency in industrial processes. From a humanitarian perspective, this can generate specialized employment, improve working conditions and, socially reduce environmental impact by optimizing the use of resources.

In sustainable terms, such technology would promote energy efficiency. For example, automotive companies already use AI to optimize production, reducing waste and improving efficiency, demonstrating how this technology can drive more ethical, socially responsible and environmentally friendly production.

Automated simultaneous translation

Automated simultaneous translation uses artificial intelligence to instantly translate spoken speech in real time. This advancement has the potential to break down language barriers and facilitate global communication, promoting humanitarian and social understanding. From a sustainable perspective, it reduces the need for travel and physical events, reducing the carbon footprint and, although it is still under development, notable progress has already been made.

There are already many digital platforms that use automated simultaneous translation, facilitating international dialogues and contributing to global connectivity in a more efficient and accessible way.

Human-Computer interfaces

Human-computer interfaces focus on the interaction between humans and computer systems. Its evolution towards more intuitive and accessible interfaces promises to improve social inclusion and facilitate access to technology for people with disabilities, betting heavily on connectivity and global communication.

Current examples include voice and gesture interfaces. Future evolution could democratize digital access, fostering a more inclusive, connected and sustainable world.

Extended reality

Extended Reality (XR) merges virtual, augmented and mixed reality, providing advanced immersive experiences. From a humanitarian perspective, XR could improve remote education and access to medical services. Socially, it connects people through shared experiences, while, in terms of sustainability, it reduces the need for physical travel.

Today it is already used in medicine to train surgeons and in the future, XR could revolutionize global education, bring together distant communities and reduce the carbon footprint, thus contributing to a more connected, inclusive and ecological world.

3D print

3D printing revolutionizes manufacturing by creating three-dimensional objects from digital models. This advance has been key in the production of more accessible prostheses and has allowed products to be personalized and innovation accelerated. In terms of sustainability, it reduces waste by printing only what is necessary. Notable examples include the construction of affordable housing and the manufacturing of medical instruments.

3D printing promises to transform global production, contributing to humanitarian solutions, fostering social creativity and moving towards more sustainable and efficient practices.


Blockchain technology is a decentralized and immutable record that guarantees data transparency and security. From a humanitarian point of view, it facilitates the management of resources in crisis . The main objective is to promote transparency in organizations and promote ethical practices.

Some examples include its use in humanitarian aid, where it ensures direct delivery of resources, and in the food industry to ensure traceability. Blockchain promises a more ethical, transparent and sustainable future by revolutionizing data and transaction management

IoT technology

The Internet of Things (IoT) connects devices to exchange data to improve smart city management and home efficiency. In sustainable terms, it optimizes the use of resources, such as, for example, the inclusion of sensors in agriculture for efficient water management.

In the future, IoT promises to advance crisis response, strengthen urban connectivity and optimize resource management, contributing to a safer, more efficient and sustainable world.
