We are creating a collective foresight platform to generate insight on emerging technologies.

Our methodology identifies publicly disclosed technologies using expert, crowd and mathematical intelligence.

Data is compiled in real time and shared with partners of the platform.

Collaborative Technology Intelligence Platform

Envisioning is the world’s first collaborative platform for technology intelligence.

We organize publically available data and share structured information with platform members.


Data Visualization

Data within the platform is displayed visually.
This allows for greater comprehension of content and appreciation of its inherent complexities.


Crowd Intelligence

We investigate technology from varied sources,
mixing multiple expertises to generate a balanced evaluation.



Technology Mapping

We map a broad array of data types.


Open Methodology

Our methodology combines crowd intelligence with subject-area expertise.
We analyse data by quantifying multiple vectors of technological growth.


Readiness Assessment

We employ multiple assessment models to represent technology as a function over time.


Research Experience

Our database is populated by technology research in multiple sectors.



A global alliance of partners ensure sustained platform growth.

Support takes many forms
