Presentation of WP 1 by Veikko Ikonen consisted of a short description about the process of identifying future emerging ICTs. The aim of the data analysis was to identify the most important emerging ICTs on the basis of relevant sources and to provide a description of the way in which these technologies are expected to make a difference. The main characteristics of future emerging information and communication technologies that came up from technology descriptions may also vary in their format while some technologies (e.g. Ambient Intelligence) have a clear vision of how it will change the way humans interact with the world but on the other hand some technology (e.g. quantum computing) visions are not so much on application level but more on higher technology level. However, at this point it is already possible to highlight some of those main characteristics that bring out the essence and developmental targets of these technologies. It seems that the move is strongly going towards convergence and transdisciplinarity in ICT development.
