Who we are and what we do

Future Intelligence (Fi) is an internet-based news site and think tank, that produces high quality reports, videos, audio and podcasts that is also responsible for the technology radio programme PassW0rd, an hour-long monthly examination of the ramifications of technology broadcast in the South-East of England on Resonance FM on the second Wednesday of every month.

Fi is also responsible for the annual AI conference hosted by the Institution of Engineering Technology at its central London Thames-side headquarters in Savoy Place.

We work by producing original, independent and insightful material into the issues thrown up by technology and bringing them to the attention of politicians, opinion-formers and decision makers to ensure that technology works in the interests of humanity and not to its detriment. This work is sponsored by some of the leading technology companies in Europe, the UK and the USA.

Reports and videos produced by Fi have achieved significant results and gained considerable media attention and promoted a positive brand profile for the companies that have sponsored our work:
