Future of BritainFuture of Britain

Governing in the age of AI requires radical-yet-practical thinking and a reimagining of the state for the 21st century. Our Future of Britain initiative sets out a policy agenda for this new era of invention and innovation, with technology as the driving force.

Radical yet practical

Governing in the age of AI

A “Reimagined State” uses the opportunities technology presents – and AI in particular – to transform society, giving government the tools it needs to do more with less, make better public services a reality and free up capital for other priorities without creating new burdens on the public. More, better, cheaper, faster. That is the reward of reimagining the state.

Our 2024 Future of Britain programme and conference will look specifically at the Future of Britain: Governing in the Age of AI. The concept of the Reimagined State is a model that any country can adopt, as technology enables governments to deploy resources strategically, driving down costs while improving outcomes.

AI will reshape the world. We should reimagine what governing in the age of AI means at the same time.

A smarter health system

Improving the quality and quantity of life

We need to deliver a health system that not only treats people when they are sick, but also prevents illness in the first place. Using technology and data, we can give people greater control of their own health. We can improve diagnoses and disease prevention. And we can provide quality personalised care when and wherever people need it.

A new era for education

Personalised, world-class education for all

Britain’s future depends on children having access to the best skills and education in the world. It should not depend on where they live. Through technology, we can deliver a world-class education system that is agile, affordable and accessible anywhere. By using AI-powered tech, we can break the link between location and quality to deliver choice, personalisation and data-driven improvement.

Planning for the future

Investing in the infrastructure we need

The UK’s physical and digital infrastructure is suffering from systems designed for a bygone age. We need to speed up the pace of planning processes and expand our definition of essential infrastructure to fast-track the digital, energy, transport and service industries of the future.

Powering next-generation industry

Building the companies of the future

Science and tech must be central to Britain’s national purpose if we are going to maintain a strategic edge in an era of historic technological change. We must embrace AI, use data and the cloud, accelerate biotech and medical science, and innovate to produce clean energy and solve the climate crisis.

A decade of electrification

Investing in the grid for future prosperity

We need a radical overhaul of our approach to powering Britain. We need large-scale investment in innovation and physical infrastructure to deliver the shift to clean, secure and low-cost energy, allowing people to power their homes and businesses to power the growth our country needs.

Investing in our strategic edge

Showing global leadership through technology

The dynamics on the world stage are shifting. The United States and China are in a new contest for supremacy, with technology at the heart of that competition. A new plan for Britain requires the country to invest in science and technology to maintain a strategic edge in the 21st century.
