You will also hear from SCDI about our ongoing Policy work in this space, which is supporting our members to prepare for the opportunities and challenges of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Learn more about what technological disruption from automation to AI to Big Data will mean for your business or sector, as set out in our respected and influential research reports, Automatic… For the People?

The lunch will be hosted by 1599 at the historic Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. The College boasts an award-winning chef, and lunch will be served in the very room when Sir Joseph Lister first presented his work on antiseptic surgery and changed the future of medicine.

This event is open to SCDI members and non-members, and is a good chance to find out more about the SCDI as well as network with other local, regional and national businesses. We hope to see you there.
