The impact of new technologies is likely to define our future societies. The distinction between the actual and virtual worlds will become blurred and artificial intelligence (AI) and robots will play an increasingly important role in economic production, potentially replacing large numbers of workers.
Given this profound change you need to understand the economic implications in order to respond confidently. We are unique in our understanding of the different stages of the innovation cycle and the role of public sector funding because these elements are built in to our macroeconomic assessments.
Some challenging questions we can help you answer:
- How can innovation policy boost future rates of economic growth and employment?
- What will be the future impacts of AI and automation on employment prospects across the labour force?
- How can society adapt to rapid technological change?
