2017 TOP 200 Memes and Agents-of-Change: Where will the next DISRUPTION come from?

London, UK - 21st December 2016, 9:20 GMT

Make no mistake: our health, homes, jobs and education depend on these fast evolving 200 memes and agents-of-change. We ignore them at our peril.

To paraphrase The Lord Howell of Guildford, my noble friend and distinguished member of ATCA 5000, at the House of Lords within the Palace of Westminster in London:

The top 200 memes and agents-of-change are "changing lives, changing societies, changing politics, changing international relations, changing powers and changing roles of governments. They raise again the philosophers' questions 'What is Government actually for? How does it maintain legitimacy and consent?' Remember G M Trevelyan's adage that 'Politics are the OUTCOME rather than the cause of social change'. Not all our political leaders -- in fact very few -- understand that!"

2017 TOP 200 Memes

Based on the accelerating and massive global feedback received by "Quantum Blockchain Robotics Artificial Intelligence Nanotech" Q-BRAIN Capital, Quantum Innovation Labs, Quantum Diamond Spintronics, ATCA 5000, The Philanthropia and the mi2g Intelligence Unit the following top 200 disruptive technological agents-of-change and memes are KEY to understanding the unfolding events yet to unfold in 2017 and beyond.

These technologically-driven disruptions are already causing massive re-engineering -- indeed economic, financial and social revolutions -- in every walk of our lives as they manifest and converge at present and in the coming years. The fast approaching technological Singularity is accelerating, fusing humanity and technology ultimately into one "Super Intelligent" hybrid. As the upheaval takes place, nothing is likely to remain the same. Amazing?!
