Digital Economy

The Exponential Speed of Technological Advancement

From computer science, big data, and engineering to robotics and AI. Technology is changing faster than ever before. We are in the midst of a revolution that will transform the way we live, work, and relate to one another. Perhaps in no other area is it more essential for APRU members to bring their research and knowledge capabilities than in the realm of the Digital Economy. APRU strives to help governments make informed decisions, and support companies at the forefront of these technologies navigate through the moral and ethical questions and implications.

To deal with profound change we need to act together. APRU is uniquely positioned to mobilize the intellectual resources of key universities in the Asia-Pacific to positively influence the Digital Economy agenda and its governance. The APRU initiative on the Digital Economy reflects our commitment to help shape the regional conversation on its future, and provide the evidentiary base for policy-making.
