Changing the future of scientific work
Scientific work is changing at a staggering rate. Not only is knowledge far more accessible, but equipment costs are falling. At the same time, cloud-based working is becoming increasingly popular and ‘democratising’ technologies, such as CRISPR gene-editing, are putting powerful scientific tools, which used to require significant funding, into the hands of the research community at large. Alongside this, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, automation, robotics, additive manufacturing processes such as 3D printing, and blockchain technology will enable advanced analysis of data and transform how research is undertaken.
This transformation will make scientific work easier and faster and give more and more researchers access to the ideas and the means to turn discoveries into life-changing innovations that can benefit humanity.
DID YOU KNOW?
More than half (56.1%) of all CRISPR publications are in the top 10% most-cited publications.
Cloud computing spending is expected to grow at better than 6x the rate of IT spending through 2020.
Global healthcare spending could reach over $10 trillion by 2022 & its delivery is being transformed.
