In simple terms, an emerging technology is a new technology. Furthermore, it’s a technology currently developing that’s expected to have a major impact on society. Some of the most recent disruptive technologies include: artificial intelligence, 5G, biometrics, augmented reality, virtual reality, the metaverse, and much more. This technology will alter the way consumers, industries, and businesses function. Not only can it change business operations, but it can create an entirely new industry. It provides new opportunities along with new legal challenges. Initially, disruptive technologies will attract a smaller audience and experience performance issues, but they are more desirable for long-term use. Typically, start-up companies take advantage of emerging/disruptive technologies while larger companies play it safe.
