Three of the most likely technological advances of 2018

Professor Jim Al-Khalili is one of my favourite scientists – able to explain complex ideas in simple and accessible form, especially quantum physics.

In today’s ‘Observer” colour supplement, he writes: “What about 2018? Surely the world won’t look too different? All I can say for certain is there are three technologies we’re going hear much more about next year, even more than we have done this year.”

The three technologies that he identifies in this short article are gene editing, artificial intelligence and advances in energy.
