This year's World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, addresses threats to geopolitical stability and human life, and seeks ways to accelerate the design of more effective political, economic and technological tools to address them.An accelerating convergence of the biological, physical and engineering sciences promises a stunning array of new technological solutions.These and other innovations are emerging from the convergence of biology and engineering that is now upon us.The technologies on which many of us depend today arose from a parallel convergence of discoveries in physics and engineering in the early 20th century. The products of electronic and digital industries will continue to expand their impact, with "big data," the "Internet of things," and the "industrial Internet" becoming increasingly prevalent. Beyond the extension of these 20th-century technologies, we can also anticipate a new set of transformational industries – as yet nameless – as we advance into the new millennium.The industries and economic drivers of the 21st century will arise from the increasingly combined efforts of biology and engineering. It is this convergence that will help deliver the technological solutions needed to supply enough clean energy, food and water, as well as better health, to sustain the world's 9 billion people in 2050 .
