Emerging Technology Primer

Description: Emerging technology describes a technology that has just come on, or is about to come on, the horizon. When considering how emerging technologies (or any technology) might be used in harmful ways, it is important to differentiate them as adjunct and disruptive technologies. Some technologies are explicitly adjunct or disruptive, while others may be categorized as either adjunct or disruptive, depending on how they are utilized by the user. This publication provides examples of technologies categorized as adjunct and/or disruptive, as well as illustrating where, along the emerging/mature technology continuum, each technology approximately lies as of the date of this publication.
