This is an interesting and entertaining read.
It gives so much to consider, some of these are relevant to the insurance industry and some are just great thoughts about how the world will develop through our lifetimes.
I have one disagreement with the table. There is no way that the development of Smart Nappies is that low on the scale for "Potential for Socio-economic Disruption". It was obviously created by someone who has never had kids!
The table consists of 100 potentially disruptive technologies, which we have defined as new technologies capable of significant social, economic or political upheaval. The Y Axis ranks potential for disruption from high to low, while the other (X Axis) is time ranked from sooner to later. The 100 technologies (99 really) are then divided into four groups. Horizon one technologies (green on the table) are new technologies that are happening right now. Companies should be integrating and executing these technologies right now if they are appropriate. Horizon two technologies (yellow) are probable near future technologies (10-20 years hence). Companies should be experimenting and discussing these technologies now. Horizon three technologies (red) are things that are likely to emerge in the more distant future (20 years plus). Companies should keep an eye on developments in these areas and explore when appropriate.
