What do they mean by technology frontier?

Frontier Technologies are typically deeper tech areas that are emerging from R&D but not at mass market commercial adoption yet. While what is considered Frontier Technology is always changing, today the sectors at the forefront of Frontier Tech are Robotics, Drones, Autonomous Vehicles, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Machine Intelligence, Space 2.0, and areas within Digital Manufacturing.

I put some data together on some of these areas last year in the CB Insights Future of Frontier Tech Report + webinar. They since have updated some of the funding figures on the blog.

Within healthcare/biotech what is considered Frontier Technology often changes as new breakthroughs like CRISPR can radically change landscapes, however I’m not the best person to opine on that.
