CDS Global: Monetizing the Digital Revolution
Innovations being tested today can have huge impacts on the future of the planet, our health and our digital experiences.

This month’s Scientific American highlights 10 World Changing Ideas that may have major impacts on our lives. One such example is in pharmaceuticals: up to 30 percent of medications in the developing world are of poor quality and can cause severe side effects or death. A kit is being tested that would provide a portable and inexpensive solution for checking the quality of medications around the world. This could provide health workers and regulatory officials with specific information about the active ingredients in medication and verify their potency. Another example is in efforts to clean the environment. Several research projects around the world are looking into the methodology and effects of injecting carbon dioxide from coal power smokestacks into a certain type of rock deep below the surface of the earth that reacts with the gas and turns it into a solid. This procedure could overcome the key problems of current carbon storage—the worry that the gas will seep up through the ground and escape back into the atmosphere. These and eight other examples, such as cloud computing technologies that better protect your data and ways to manipulate microbes in our guts to defeat many illnesses, could improve our lives worldwide.
