In the future...

how will we advance?


The UK’s National Programme convened a global audience to address some of the greatest challenges of our time, with tangible opportunities to showcase how the UK is innovating for a shared future.  

In March 2022, we hosted 5 days of activities asking the question, 'In the Future; How will we Advance?’ where our focus was on how technology will continue to shape every area of our lives in the future.

Our programme investigated how advances in technology are transforming the world and the human experience and the impact this could have.  

AI, machine learning, robotics and the Internet of Things offer solutions to some of the most crucial issues of our time. Technology can transform every aspect of human experience and beyond including healthcare, transport, energy and climate change with an impact yet to be fully realised. Global leaders from multiple industries came together to explore how technology will continue to shape every area of our lives in the future, what the possibilities are and whether the benefits will be at the cost of our humanity.  

Topics that were covered included:

  • How humans and artificial intelligence evolve together 

  • How technology will continue to transform the world 

  • The future for technology entrepreneurship

  • Data ethics

  • Space tourism

Global questions our programme explored included: 

  • How can we develop technology that can benefit all of mankind? 

  • How can AI contribute to solving the big challenges such as climate change?

  • How to encourage innovation in data-enabled technologies within a responsible and ethical framework?

  • What’s next for the web?
