The technologies that will change the
world, according to Lux
Research's analysts and data scientists.
The Lux Tech 299 is our list of the most impactful innovations to track and potentially act upon,
ranging from well-known technologies to under-the-radar, up-and-coming opportunities. The methodology
behind this list comes from Lux Research's proprietary data science algorithms, which analyze innovation
data like patents, academic papers, various funding types, news, and more, to continually monitor and
rank the state of innovation. The list and the associated research updates daily.
You can filter the below by the overall ranking, or by other metrics like how mature the technology is
or how quick-growing in innovation interest it is. Where available, full Tech Pages on each technology
are linked to. If you have questions about the methodology or where other technologies not on the Lux
Tech 299 fall, please contact us.
Ability of machines to perform complex tasks that have historically required human thinking; includes machine learning (like neural networks and deep learning) and symbolic reasoning (like expert systems). Deep learning is a subset of this broader machine learning and AI topic.
Integrated system of environmental perception sensors, edge processing hardware, real-time decision-making software, and connectivity that enables assistive features, partial autonomy, and full autonomy in consumer and commercial vehicles.
Integrated system of vehicles, infrastructure, and cloud platforms that use connectivity to provide entertainment, performance monitoring and management, and safety features and services in consumer and commercial vehicles.
Laser-based 3D sensing technology that enables precise mapping and real-time environmental perception capabilities in applications like autonomous vehicles, future factory, and commercial drones, to name a few.
Computers that use quantum bits (qubits), which thanks to superposition and entanglement can lead to much faster processing speeds than classical computers, for applications that range from cybersecurity to finance to machine learning.
Next-generation battery chemistry that replaces conventional liquid electrolytes with solid ion-conducting materials like polymers and ceramics, thereby increasing energy, improving safety, and potentially lowering costs.
Matching a physical object with a digital representation of itself that is kept as detailed and up-to-date as possible, to collect and model precise information regarding the use and performance of complex physical objects.
Materials to accelerate chemical reactions in the Haber process, which is an artificial nitrogen fixation process widely used to make ammonia fertilizers.
