Intelligent automation

Intelligent automation has the capacity to revolutionise business services across a variety of industries through driving optimisation, enhancing digitisation and building resilience. Since the pandemic, businesses from across different sectors can look to automation to build resilience and drive continuity, and in turn push forward a new, technology-focused future of work that will drastically change the UK's workforce and economy.

Quantum

Quantum computing has been identified as a key emerging and transformative technology that will have an impact on the UK’s long term digital and economic future. In the coming years, Quantum will have the potential to enable smart cities, revolutionise healthcare systems and drive innovation in key industries. To prepare for this future techUK believes now is the time to bring the wider technology sector into the discussion about the UK’s quantum future and how we plan for success.
