Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
AI and ML have been around for decades but it is only recently that the foundational tools, techniques and data collections have existed to allow rapid adoption and experimentation in most sectors of our economies and societies.

Advanced Manufacturing, Materials, Additive Manufacturing & Robotics
Commentary and speculation about the fourth industrial revolution has become almost an industry in itself; that said, leaders in the manufacturing sector are having to make major decisions, change long-standing assumptions and take significant risks if they want to stay competitive and grow in the decades to come. This is not only true for leaders in industry but also for the people training the next generations of manufacturing personnel and those shaping new industrial policy.
