In partnership with Corsham Institute
The third consultation of four in the Corsham Institute 2016 Thought Leadership Programme
The digital world is less than 25 years old, however, it has already demonstrated clear economic and social benefits. In the UK we have seen the ‘Smart Cities’ initiative focus on the development of digital infrastructure in our main population centres and the meshing together of digital and analogue infrastructure. To date, however, the focus has been on infrastructure rather than how digital technologies can benefit the lives of individual citizens. By considering ‘smarter living’ and the ways in which digital can support more effective day-to-day elements of our lives in terms of work, home and community, this event aimed to explore how we can all benefit from the advantages that digital technologies can deliver.
