What Will Our World
Be Like in 10 Years?
Emerging Trends
Emerging Trends is the first
in a projected series of five
volumes that Maxim Jago is
writing especially for IEEEUSA. The overall title of the
series is What Will Our World
Be Like in 10 Years?
British-born Jago's work spans multiple industries-
from Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Extended Reality
(XR)-to education and the creative arts. The author of
numerous books and online courses, Jago's volume on
video editing with Adobe Premiere Pro is the standard
text most film schools use. In addition, millions of
people worldwide have viewed his more than 1,800
online tutorials that teach the subject.
With Emerging Trends, IEEE members and other
technical professionals need to look no further for
reliable predictions about how social developments will
likely affect contemporary technologies over the next
decade. The audiobook offers Jago's views on about

31 developments he defines as " impactful for several
important facets of our lives, in the next ten years. " He
goes on to pinpoint them as themes that are " the most
compelling and worthy of attention. "
IEEE-USA is now offering this new, free audiobook,

A pioneer and a visionary 1924-2020

Faqir
Chand Kohli

Regarded as the " father " of India's IT revolution, Faqir Chand Kohli helped drive
India's IT industry from a handful of computer professionals to a multibillion
dollar industry with over 2 million highly trained professionals. Kohil, an HKN
Eminent Member, IEEE Founders Medal recipient and the founder of Tata
Consultancy Services, died 26 November 2020.

1924-2020
Founder of
IEEE Founders Medal

Kohli helped improve and develop the human resources required for
successful computer hardware and software engineering growth in India
and modernize India's engineering curricula and facilities to support the IT
industry's growth.
As Tata Consultancy Services' first general manager, Kohli saw the potential
software engineering held for utilizing India's growing engineering talent.
However, India did not have the necessary hardware to support such a vision
early on. Kohli worked hard to develop deep technical strength at Tata by
settling for nothing less than the state-of-the-art computer technology, which
was crucial to offering quality IT services. Through his efforts, India's world-class
IT services industry has become the country's signature. Tata is the largest IT
Company in India, employing more than 350,000 people in 75 countries.
Kohli championed the use of technology to address social challenges. He
designed a multimedia computing system to aid illiterate adults in Indian
languages, which has been adopted by the Government of India. The system
improves literacy within 30 hours of lessons, and its success led to interest
from South Africa in addressing several African languages. Kohli also applied
the benefits of technology to advancing India's engineering curricula and
facilities to support the engineering and IT industry's growth. He spurred a
new generation of corporate social responsibility initiatives through which
professionals use their technological competencies to improve society.
Dr. Kohli was born in Peshawar, India. He earned a bachelor's of science
in electrical engineering from Queen's University in Canada in 1948 and
his master's of science in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology in 1950.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Kohli received the 2012 IEEE Founders Medal " for early
vision and pioneering contributions to the development of the IT industry in
India. " He was an active IEEE Volunteer, serving as founding Chair of the IEEE
India Section, and then of the IEEE India Council when it became a Council of
three Sections. Ultimately he served as Director of IEEE Region 10.
