UK calls for infrastructure evidence

The UK’s National Infrastructure Commission has launched a call for evidence to shape the development of a study to identify which new technologies have the greatest potential for improving the productivity of infrastructure, and what steps government should take to support the deployment of these technologies. Launching the call for evidence, Lord Adonis said: “From big data to the internet of things, and artificial intelligence to digitisation, new technologies are reshaping our infrastructure and our country. If the UK is to succeed in the global economy of the future, we have to ensure that we are harnessing innovative new technologies to maximum effect. This study will explore which new technologies have the most potential for improving the way we manage our infrastructure. So through this call for evidence we want to hear views from across industry, politics and the public, from infrastructure specialists, to developers of new technologies. This work is timely and vital – if we don’t position ourselves at the forefront of technological innovation, our competitors will.” More here
