Technology change is not new, but what is different now is the speed of the development of new digital capabilities. For example, the introduction of artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), augmented and virtual reality, mechanization, and other new capabilities are beginning to have an effect. In addition, increased computing power, the convergence of physical and digital, and the ability for machine-to-machine communications is accelerating at a rapid pace.
UBC has been a leader in leveraging technologies to advance research, teaching and learning, and operational excellence for decades. Take some time to explore the virtual exhibit which showcases a sampling of innovative digital initiatives at the university.
