Future of Digital Identity
How we prove that we are who or what we say we are during digital transactions and interactions is set to become one of the defining features of the next stage of the human digital transformation. Today, we are living with early attempts to solve the identity problem that are no longer fit for purpose. At best, the multiple different ways we login, confirm our identities, and establish trust in claims made during digital exchanges, has become profoundly inconvenient. At worst, they have left us in a connected world which is neither safe nor secure, and in which we seem…

Future of Autonomous Vehicles
There are great expectations around the future of autonomous vehicles (AVs) and equally much uncertainty. Some believe that AVs will transform safety and efficiency and are making significant investments in this area. Others are concerned that the technological developments are outpacing society’s ability to adapt, and there is an urgent requirement to develop better regulation before there is widespread deployment. A global Open Foresight project exploring the key issues for the future of AVs is being undertaken by Future Agenda. Expert workshops around the world are building the informed view.
Future of Cities
Cities are where innovation happens, where ideas form and where economic growth largely stems. They are where most of us live and are also where significant problems can emerge as well as where challenges can be magnified. Cities around the world are now wrestling with reducing air pollution, congestion and inequality, but they are also becoming test-beds for innovation that is then shared globally. Building on previous research, the Future Agenda team focused in depth on the Future of Cities via 12 discussions in 9 key cities between November 2014 and March 2017.
Future of Patient Data
It is clear that we are witnessing a growing revolution around the provision of healthcare. In the main this is being driven by the proliferation of medical data and the technology that supports this. As the pressures on existing healthcare providers continue to escalate, the better collection, management and use of more patient-specific information provides a significant opportunity for innovation and change. In the winter of 2017/18 the Future Agenda team made this the focus of our latest Open Foresight project and this led us to hold 12 discussions across 11 countries and gather outlooks from over 300 experts. During…
Future of Philanthropy
This decade sees philanthropy at a pivotal point. The evolving geopolitical landscape, the rapid creation of new wealth and a greater awareness of how philanthropy can create social change have already led to exciting innovation and new thinking. This is influencing approaches to giving and the implementation of social responsibility initiatives across the world. Building on previous research, the Future Agenda team focused in depth on the future of Philanthropy via nine high level discussions which were held in Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, London (x2), Mumbai, Oxford, Quito, Singapore and Washington DC. During our conversations we explored the key interconnected drivers…
