As quantum computing moves from theory to practical applications, do we have a workforce of engineers and scientists ready and equipped with the skills needed to work in this exciting, emerging field? In his foreword to this edition, IKE CEO Professor Sa’ad Sam Medhat reports from the recent Future Compute gathering at MIT, where these questions were high on the agenda.

Also in this issue, we look into new recommendations from the UK’s Committee on Standards in Public Life on the use of artificial intelligence in the public sector, and hear from IFS on how decision-makers in the aerospace and defence industry feel about integrating Industry 4.0 technologies to achieve their digital transformation goals.

COPA-DATA UK shares a view on how automated engineering could help to bridge the skills gap in the UK’s manufacturing sector, and Percepto argues that critical infrastructure operators should invest in autonomous technology to help mitigate the business impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In business management and leadership, we hear from Open University chancellor Baroness Martha Lane Fox about why leaders need brush up on their digital skills, while IKE fellow Andrew Constable tells us about knowledge creation and management strategies that can help drive innovation in account management teams.

I hope you enjoy this edition of Brite Innovation Review.
