Four main work themes …
- A Global Issues Graph and platform. This maps the key strategic issues and transformations that define an industry, economy or issue, and how they inter-connect and impact each other.
- A Machine Learning content pipeline to discover trends and experts.
- A data infrastructure and digital reports platform. This provides indicators and rankings to analyse and measure progress against global issues – from Energy Architecture to Gender Parity to Inclusive Growth.
- A projects and global governance platform. International organisations, governments and businesses need to collaborate to move global issues forwards. This product enables them towards that mission.
