The digital society, fully enabled by connectivity and technology, offers considerable challenges and a huge number of opportunities; from transforming health and care provision through to education methods, to creating smart living environments and resilient communities. All underpinned by a highly connected, engaged and trusted society.

At Ci, we are stepping up to today’s digital challenges bringing together leaders and specialists, to shape a positive and trusted future; amplifying proven ideas and actions for societal gain.

We have developed a digital technologies testing environment in the Digital Collaboratory where SMEs and our partners can research, innovate and implement new digital models, products and services that are essential to citizens, Government and businesses using state of the art technologies, including Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality & Artificial Intelligence.

The Ci Digital Collaboratory is a test-bed where like-minded parties can collectively experiment and imagine. It is both a shared physical and virtual research space, to connect and innovate across sectors.

Ci has the ability and the commitment to co-develop new concepts embracing scale, ethics, privacy and trust, from conception through to market. Our focus is to ensure that citizens lead healthier, better and safer lives, to empower enterprises, enabling them to compete effectively in the global market.

At Ci we recognise that trust is a big factor in the adoption of digital technologies from questions around where and who has my data, to ‘will it take my job’? The human element is crucial in enabling digital technologies to improve our lives.

We have already made great strides in this collective endeavour, but we are only at the beginning of our journey and are reaching out across industry, Government and academia to facilitate solutions and partnerships.
