Exploring the Impacts of a New Digital Infrastructure

Exploring the Impacts of a New Digital Infrastructure

Past Event

Robots in society.

Advanced data capture and analytics.

Decentralized production techniques.

These are some of the technologies being combined to form a new digital infrastructure that will affect almost every aspect of the global economy. This infrastructure will impact the lives of Canadians in ways that we don't yet fully understand. What we do know is that both society and work will look very different.

Join Policy Horizons Canada to learn about their latest foresight research. This is your opportunity to challenge some common planning assumptions about the future of the economy and explore the various impacts this research could have on Canada and the world.
