What are we doing?
We are developing new research into the impact on societies of transformative technological change and the implications of the development of disruptive technologies, including extreme computing and the longer term implications of advances in the biosciences.
Why is it important?
Technological advancement has always been a major driver of social change. As our rate of technological innovation accelerates, it is vital to understand the nature of technological change, its directions and possible impacts for humanity.
How are we different?
We take a long term vision of the future, looking ahead to thirty, forty or fifty years from now. By examining the advances possible for technology and the capabilities that might be attained, we can gain an understanding of the implications for society and gain a better understanding of our present trajectories. Our long-term, multidisciplinary approach brings fresh perspectives to understanding the potential for transformational technological change and its implications for the nature of work, leisure and employment and broader societal relations.
