    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    It depends on what you mean by potential. I voted for Robotics and AI, because I think it has the most potential for new technology. However if you want to know what has the most potential to make money I'd say alternative energy sources.

    It's still silly to lump robotics and AI. If AI gets going, robotics and everything else in the list will be taken care of.

    Wasn't this a longer thread somewhere, or am I going crazy?

    Uhh...I'd vote for a combination of at least two of those at once.

    For instance, a research project I'm looking into involves a combination of nanotech with biotech.

    I say computers, because of the demand. Everyone wants one. Everyone thinks they need one. Money is a great incentive.
