CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, MIT Technology Review releases its 2013 list of 10 Breakthrough Technologies. Each year we identify ten technology developments that mark true milestones. The advances highlighted from the past 12 months all solve thorny problems or create powerful new ways of using technology. They are breakthroughs that will matter for years to come.
Jason Pontin, publisher and editor in chief, states: "We believe that technology can help solve really hard problems and that these solutions will expand human possibilities. To that end, each year we select the ten technologies we believe have the potential for major impact – those which could change the world. These technologies are an expression of our preferences and emphases, and they grow out of our reporting over the past 12 months. This is the stuff we like."
The May/June issue of MIT Technology Review will be available on newsstands worldwide May 7 and online at technologyreview.com on April 23.
