Emerging Technologies

24/7 game-changing innovations discovery

Mergeflow feeds all contents through semantic models that detect emerging technologies. We look at various industries, including aerospace, agriculture, computing, energy, manufacturing, materials, medical, and transportation.

Go beyond reports

Reports provide background information on emerging or disruptive technologies. But they are snapshots in time.

With Mergeflow, you can track emerging technologies on a continuous basis. So you can see, for example, when a technology evolves from basic research to commercialization, or when new players enter your market.

Track disruptive technologies from across industries

Click on any of the industry categories below, in order to see the semantic models for that category. If you already have a Mergeflow account, you can click on any technology, and explore it live.

Semantic models

While computers can do simple string matching, for instance determine whether a text contains a certain string or not, they can not "understand" whether any two words are semantically related. For example, additive manufacturing and 3D printing are semantically related but the strings do not match. This is where semantic models come in. They represent text contents such as words or phrases in a way so that computers can "understand" and even perform calculations on concepts rather than just strings.

The following paper is a widely cited example of such semantic modeling:
