It’s hard to picture a new age when you’re living through it.
Yet the new digital age we are entering is going to turn everything we do and think on its head. We can now transform everyday objects into a network of information that allows us to understand our world more than ever. The Internet of Things will become the eyes and ears of the world around us, enabling radical change in our homes and work.
And innovation is needed more now than ever.
By 2050, the world population will hit 10 billion people, which will demand entirely new thought processes if we are to live sustainably and peacefully on this planet. We will need new production methods if we are going to feed everyone. Mass urbanisation will challenge how we connect our cities and enable transportation across the world. Demand for energy and for raw materials will increase.
