The Digital Society Podcast
In a rapidly changing world, technological innovation is transforming every aspect of society. The pace of this change has only accelerated in the wake of COVID-19, disrupting long-established patterns of living and working.
As a leading designer and provider of digital services, Atos has been helping organisations navigate shifting landscapes for decades. But we’re not alone on this journey and, with technology more influential than ever, making sense of this change has never been more important.
The Digital Society Podcast, hosted by Kulveer Ranger, SVP Strategy & Communications at Atos’, will bring together journalists, politicos and key policy influencers to discuss how technology will shape our lives going forward and how decision makers can work to ensure it benefits all citizens by helping us achieve things once thought unimaginable.
