The Digital Futures Institute helps build better technological futures.
Creating new knowledge infrastructures where the SHAPE (Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts for People and the Economy), STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and Health disciplines converge, the Institute forges radically interdisciplinary solutions to some of the most pressing technological problems of the current age.
Through our research programmes, our educational courses and our external engagement activities we reframe what are usually thought of as purely technical challenges – to be solved through technical fixes – as human and social challenges that require innovative ways of knowing, responding and making. Drawing on a wide range of research expertise across King’s, and focusing on the relationship between the individual and technology (understanding ‘technology’ in the broadest sense), we help build a technological future that is more conducive to living well.
King's is at the forefront of a flagship Responsible AI project - a national multidisciplinary network of researchers, industry, policy makers, and organisations, working to ensure AI development is carried out with due responsibility.
