Technology is playing an increasingly vital role in all aspects of business and society. New innovations may provide answers to the key challenges facing the world today, from climate change to resource sustainability to affordable healthcare for an ageing population. New technologies allow us to make things better, faster and cheaper, and are empowering individuals in a number of ways. Most importantly, technology is a key driver of hyper connectivity -- the interconnecting of everyone with everything - which fundamentally redefines how individuals, enterprises and governments interconnect and relate. It provides new models for innovation, new opportunities for growth, but also new risks that will have to be managed and mitigated. In the recent WEF 2013, A few pioneer companies presented their vision in the areas of information technology, telecommunications and new media, energy and environment, and life sciences and health. These companies have demonstrative vision and leadership in their fields, innovative ideas and approaches, and their impact on society and business. This year's group of Technology Pioneers provides new models and solutions in a number of areas including solutions for a greener and more sustainable planet, technology for social and economic development, interaction-enabling technologies and platforms for collaborative exchange.
