I don't know if there's a way to answer this question definitively. I believe ideas and innovation roughly follow a sine curve of progress. As a society, we are perhaps in the second half of the downward sloped-part as of this writing.

Interestingly, I found this website by Patrick Collison and Michael Nielsen - https://scientificreturns.org [a] which has a well-researched list of content.

Technology takes a while to enter the realms where it will have the most impact.

I'll make notes at some point in the future.
