Few innovations have transformed engineering over the past decades as completely as digital technologies. The rapid emergence of artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data analytics, blockchain and the Internet-of-Things (IoT) ensure that this trend will continue for the decades ahead.
Digital technologies are powerful engineering tools; however, they also come with significant risks in terms of cybersecurity, privacy, confidentiality, the digital divide and national security just to name a few. Today engineered systems have to be both physically and virtually safe and secure.
Throughout its programs the Academy seeks to promote a responsible leadership in digital transformation.
