Digital and Future Tech

Their power. Whose control?
Let’s get to work.

Our research

Rapid advances in technology, from the internet and social media to mobile devices and robotics, are changing our lives forever.

They open up a world of possibilities to solve some of society’s greatest challenges – but there are also potential pitfalls. 

Our internationally-recognised researchers are experts in the use of the latest technology in a wide range of areas from healthcare to sustainable buildings.

They benefit from cutting edge facilities like the University’s Viper supercomputer - the highest rated High Performance Computing (HPC) centre in the North of England.

At Hull, we’re getting on with solving some of these problems. Making a difference to people here on our doorstep and all over the globe.

Here’s what we’re working on now. If you think you can help, we’d love to hear from you.
