Future Shock: the trends, technologies and movements that should be defining the 2015 election (but aren’t)

In 2015, Britain will vote on how it will be governed for the next five years. We can expect a hard-fought, gritty, often negative campaign from all the main parties.

But a lot will change in the next five years. At this event, we’ll look at important trends and technologies that will shape the UK and its economy in the not-so-distant future, and what policy-makers should be doing about them.

Expect lively discussion from across the political spectrum, controversial economic views, and glimpses of future technologies and the effect they will have on us.

Topics will include:

  • The Creative Economy –  the UK’s future?
  • The Uber-ification of everything
  • The technological transformation of health
  • Surviving and thriving in an age of robots
  • Will the state drive innovation?
  • The coming fight over data
