About the product

This publication examines how to make frontier technologies work for all. Presenting possible inequalities that rapid technological change could exacerbate, it explores ways to steer this change towards improved inclusiveness with regard to income, gender, age, special needs or other specific challenges. Inequalities considered here are linked primarily to a set of digital frontier technologies that includes artificial intelligence, big data, and robotics, rather than to all frontier technologies. The study focuses on the development of appropriate business models that promote inclusive innovation through scaling up digital frontier technologies for inclusive and sustainable development.
