Top Tech 2022: A Special Report

At the beginning of each year, IEEE spectrum attempts to predict the future. It can be difficult, but we do our best and fill the January issue with a few dozen reports, short and long, about the editorial development. expect to make news in the coming year.

This is not difficult to do when the project has been underway for a long time and is progressing according to plan – the upcoming first flight of NASA’s Space Launch System, for example. For other stories, we need to go further out on a limb. An example: the description of a hardware wallet for Bitcoin, which the company formerly known as Square (which recently changed its name to Block) is developing, but will not officially comment. One thing we can predict with confidence, though, is this Spectrum readers familiar with the vicissitudes of technical development work will understand if some of these projects do not actually succeed. It’s still okay.

Technology, like life, is as much about the journey as the destination.
