Ambient intelligence and bioprinting are some of the big technologies that researchers predict may become "game changers" in healthcare over the next year, according to a recent CB Insights report.

For its Game-Changing Tech 2021 report, CB Insights outlines 10 emerging technology trends across the healthcare, privacy, education, environment and financial industries.

Here are three game-changing technologies in healthcare in 2021:

1. Space-based research and development: service providers for space-based experimentation in areas such as biology and biotechnology. 

2. Bioprinting: 3D printing using cells and biomaterials to create living biological tissue, such as on-demand human organ creation.

3. Ambient intelligence: artificial intelligence and Internet of Things-enabled environments that are responsive to the presence of people in healthcare spaces like intensive care units and clinics that are more difficult to monitor.

Here are two game-changing technologies in privacy for 2021:

4. Cookie-busting ads: using AI to appropriately place ads based on content, not activity-tracking.

5. Differential privacy: privacy solutions that mask data or make it anonymous to support analysis and sharing without exposing private information.
