The website Future.ly aims to map the state of innovation across the world, from the people who are involved in new ideas, to  cutting-edge trends and research. Their site explains the details:

Our vision at Future.ly is to make the cutting edge standard, visualize future possibilities and map the players, influence factors and dynamics in the innovation space around the world. Ranging from tracking the Innovators, the institution or startups that they work in, the technologies that they are working on to the invisible characteristics that connect them. We aggregate relevant data sources to monitor dynamics and surface trends within different areas and enable the visual exploration of this data.

Their first step involves analyzing and mapping data from technology related TED talks. Once 1000 hotspots have been curated, the site will feature a real-time, updated visualization map showing the areas of innovation. Until then, a list of cutting-edge trends can be viewed, with a range of topics including defeating ageing, sustainability, open-source learning, and organic design.
