Launched in 2006, IBM’s 5 in 5 has become a hallmark event as the calendar flips from one year to the next.  Each December, IBM unveils the 5 in 5 -- five predictions about how technology innovations will change the way we work, live and play within the next five years.  The 5 in 5 is based on market and societal trends, and the ideas come from the thousands of biologists, engineers, mathematicians and medical physicians in our Research labs around the world -- IBM has the world's largest industrial research organization.
