Scientists, technologists, engineers and visionaries create the future. Developed amazing things. But this is all well known, and so universally. But you know what you usually pay little attention? Scale.
How big is big?
"Silicon valley, silicon raspberries, all of these silicon around the world dream dreams. They create innovations," says Katherine wood from Singularity University in new York. "We appreciate the opportunity. That's what we do."
Wood is the founder and CEO of ARK Investment Management, research and investment company that focuses on the growth potential of modern explosive technology. Prior to ARK, she worked at the post CIO of Global Thematic Strategies at AllianceBernstein for 12 years.
"We believe that innovation is the key to growth," says wood. "We don't look to the past. We look to the future. We believe that the public market is a huge opportunity because the move to passive investing has generated risk aversion and the colossal inefficiency".
In the new study, which was published this week, ARK studied seven explosive technologies and evaluated their scale. Here they are.
Deep training will cost 35 "the Amazon"
Deep learning is a subcategory of machine learning, which itself is a subcategory of artificial intelligence. Deep learning is the cause of all the hype that surrounds AI today. But behind the hype there are large companies that are trying to get deep learning to do practical things. And if the Internet, which was released trillions of market value, has transformed several areas such as news, entertainment, advertising, and so on — deep learning may be even greater, says wood.
As soon as deep learning improves, it will be to automate and improve technology, transportation, manufacturing, healthcare, Finance and more. And as is often the case with developing technologies, a completely new business areas, which we can't even imagine.
"Bill gates said that a breakthrough in machine learning would be worth 10 Microsoft. Microsoft is 550-600 billion dollars, wood says. — We believe that deep learning will cost twice more and close to a market capitalization of 17 trillion dollars. It cost 35 Amazon."
Autonomous taxi will supplant automakers
In the future cars will be self-governing.
"This is the biggest change faced by the automotive industry in history," says wood.
Today's manufacturers have a global market capitalization of a trillion dollars. Meanwhile, companies that provide transportation services and transportation, are estimated at 115 billion dollars. If this evaluation included a future without drivers, it would be higher.
Market mobility-as-a-service, which will reduce the cost of travel "from point A to point B", will be worth more than all modern automakers combined. Twice. Because in the early 2030s gross sales will grow to $ 10 trillion, 20% of them will have on service providers. It is about 2 trillion dollars.
Wood says that the market will be dominated by a few companies, and Tesla may well be one of them. It develops equipment, electric and software algorithms for self-driving. And though analysts now view the company as purely automaker, it will not always.
"We believe that even if Tesla will take 5% of the global market for Autonomous taxi, it will cost about $ 100 billion," says wood.
3D printing will accelerate due to the enlargement of sales of finished products
3D printing has become part of the mainstream mainly because of the prospects of the emergence of desktop printers at affordable prices. But they are still imperfect, and the dream of home the Replicator remains elusive. However, the production side is much closer to the use of 3D printers in scale.
Not long ago, Carbon has teamed up with Adidas for the mass production of shoes. This is important because industrial 3D printing is focused on prototyping, reducing the cost, improving the quality and speed of production of finished products.
According to ARK, the market of 3D printing could gain $ 41 billion by 2020, McKinsey forecasts growth of up to 490 billion by 2025. 3D printing could become part of the industrial production process.
CRISPR genetic therapy begins, but not limited to
According to ARK, the cost of editing the genome grew at 28-52 (depending on the reagents) times in the last four years. CRISPR is a technique that brings the revolution for genome editing, reducing the time and cost effective gene editing. Despite all this potential, investors are not eager to invest.
"There are about 10,000 monogenic or single-celled diseases. Only 5% are treatable today," she says. ARK considers that the treatment of these diseases results in $ 70 billion annually. Other areas of interest include research in the field of treatment of stem cells, personalized medicine, drug development, agriculture, biofuels and many more.
Wood believes that in this industry the expectations yet understated.
Mobile payments will grow 15 times by 2020
By 2020, 75% of the world's population will have a smartphone. Among other applications, smartphones, mobile payment will be very popular. In combination with advanced security (biometrics) and the widespread (and NFC POS) mobile payments will increase 15 times, from 1 trillion today, up to 15 trillion in 2020.
In addition, if the transactions become more flexible and hassle-free, they will be key for financial integration of the divided economy in emerging and developed markets. And large emerging markets such as India and China will be in the forefront.
"The changes will begin with Asia," says wood. "Look at companies like Tencent and Alipay. They are already walking pretty fast towards mobile technology and we are paving the way."
Robots and automation will free up a 12 trillion by 2035
Robots now work not only to the manufacturers. Due to the constant reduction of costs and simplification of the programming business is more attracted to robots. Working robotic force warehouses Amazon has grown from 1000 to 50 000 in 2014. "And they never fired deliberately to their distribution centers," says wood.
But fears about losing jobs have grounds.
This is only the beginning of a great cycle automation, which occurs due to cheap, intelligent, safe and flexible robots. There will be many replacements. But we should not discount the performance increase. By 2035 the US GDP is 12 trillion more with robotics and automation — economy 40 trillion dollars instead of 28 trillion dollars.
"This is the story of technology. Performance. New products and services. The task for investors is to figure out where these $ 12 trillion. Now it is hard to imagine how it was hard to imagine what will become of the Internet in the early 90s".
The blockchain and cryptocurrency
A cryptocurrency based on the blockchain, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Steem in recent years attracted a lot of attention. In addition to bitcoin today there are about 700 of cryptocurrencies in different shapes and shades. Bitcoin still dominates with a market value of 40 billion dollars (two years ago it was 3 billion dollars). But that's only half of the whole.
"The market is in its infancy. Now kryptomere there are a lot of problems, but the prospect of big."
As with all young markets, the cryptocurrency market "characterized by enthusiasm, uncertainty and speculation." According to various estimates, the total value of this market for 10 years will exceed a trillion dollars.
In addition, there is at least one large sector, which can turn the blockchain and cryptocurrency: the business of sending money across the border, that is, remittances.

For anybody not a secret that 2017 was an extremely rich and diverse in announcements of different mobile devices top level. So, was attended by dozens of high-end smartphones, to list all of them extremely difficult.
Among the most popular can be distinguished LG G6, Sony Xperia XZ Premium, iPhone X, LG V30, Samsung Galaxy S8, U11 HTC, OnePlus 5, Xiaomi Mi 6, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, Meizu Pro 7 Plus, Essential Phone and several others. All of them, in fact, worthy of attention, but only one of them is the best.
Authoritative magazine Consumer Reports has published another list of best smartphones. In the first place was the Samsung Galaxy S8, although this rating was made after the start of sales of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, then there are experts consciously and objectively put the South Korean flagship in the first half of 2017 first.
At the same time, new smartphones Apple ranked only fourth and fifth places respectively, than Apple fans will certainly be unhappy. Thus, according to experts from the magazine, the best smartphone in the world right now is the Samsung Galaxy S8. The model Galaxy Note 8, which is more technologically advanced and larger version, was only in sixth place. Experts have found that it has too little battery life and incredibly a lot of weight, which use a 6.4-inch flagship with one hand is extremely difficult. Ordinary users with the position of the magazine Consumer Reports fundamentally disagree, as, according to an independent survey, the best and most desired smartphone of 2017 is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which represents the ideal flagship, equipped with edge-to-edge AMOLED-screen, dual-core camera, top technical equipment and support for many different technologies and standards.

HumanCode startup has developed an application through which the parents will be able to see the appearance of your child and determine his mental and physical abilities.
As reported by Reuters to learn such data, partners need to spit in a tube, which work together with the application BabyGlimpse ("a hint of the child").
Artificial intelligence mix of paternal and maternal genes at random, giving the most probable genetic code that the child will inherit from their parents.
The result of a detailed analysis of the AI will load to the personal account application, which so far works only on the iOS system, or on a password-protected website.
The program will be a photo of your future child, his behavioral and physical characteristics and possible health problems.
With regard to the accuracy of the program while the developers can't absolutely guarantee the absolute correctness of the analysis, since much will depend on genetic factors of both parents.
A new app has interested many young people, but there were skeptics who do not understand, why use this app if you can wait until late in their pregnancy and meet their future child, did ultrasound.
The producers said that the main feature of the app is that it can define the appearance of the child before pregnancy planning, which takes only the saliva of both partners. Will cost such a prediction is not cheap — at $ 349 (9 300 UAH.)

In 2019, the worldwide shipments of OLED panels for smartphones will exceed 1.37 billion, and in 2020-m screens, organic LEDs, designed for smartphones will overtake shipments of LCD displays. With such a forecast made by experts of the analytical company Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), reports DigiTimes.
The widespread introduction of OLED panels is expected not only in the smartphone segment, but in the other categories, including smart watches, tablets and TVs. In particular, DSCC believe that the supply of OLED-TVs in 2017 reached 1.5 million, and in 2018 to 2.4 million units.
In General, the income of the OLED industry this year is expected to grow 57%, to 23.2 billion dollars. In 2018 it is projected to rise by another 50%, to 34.9 billion dollars, and in 2022, the proceeds from the sale of OLED products will reach 62.8 per billion, said in DSCC.
Experts note that the most active in the equipment for manufacture of OLED panels is invested by South Korean and Chinese vendors. Currently first place in terms of investment is the company Samsung Electronics, but in 2019-2022 years it will press BOE Technology.
Analysts also added that in the IV quarter of 2017 the capacity for the production of flexible OLED displays will exceed the ability of enterprises specializing in inflexible types of OLED panels, and in the third quarter of 2018, the first will overtake the second, in terms of production volume.
