SAN FRANCISCO (USA Today) – What does 2025 look like from a tech point of view?

We humans will be walking, running, sleeping data streams pumping out constantly updated metrics that will be both safeguarded and valuable.

We’ll do our jobs with the assistance of artificial intelligence to achieve better results faster.

And we’ll leverage technological breakthroughs to create digital gatekeepers that tame the information-overload beast.

At least that’s the idealized vision of our society 10 years down the road, according to a new report out Thursday from the Institute for the Future called Information Generation: Transforming the Future Today. The project was commissioned by cloud-storage company EMC, with quantitative research conducted by Vanson Bourne.
