A few days ago, I was asked whether I thought language learning would become redundant in the foreseeable future because of the development of machine learning and translation technology. Or as some of my, shall we say, slightly less enthusiastic former students might have put it: A flagship AHRC-funded project to revitalize Modern Languages and shape UK language policy by showing how multilingualism can empower individuals and transform societies.
French grammar — what a waste of time! Flexible Funding Call Application deadline: It looks at the origins of god and religion, and suggests that they need to be reviewed and updated. It analyses the views of modern philosophers and establishes the way forward toards a world without war.

The dawn of the 4th Industrial Revolution shows the world has shrunk and we are all more connected than ever before. The lucky minority feel empowered by technology to have more control over their lives, their work, their leisure. But a growing Technology Justice movement shows that while many of us have benefited by empowering technologies, a large proportion of the planet haven't got access to the technologies of even the 1st and 2nd Industrial Revolutions, like roads, electricity or medicines.
Our innovations we have messed up the planet, inequalities are worse than ever, the worlds richest 7 men not 8! The financial crisis has left many impoverished, automation threatens job displacement on a dramatic scale. The Edelman Trust Barometer shows us that trust in institutions is at an all time low.
Mass media of all types shows up the differences between the promise of technologies and their reality, and highlights the many disparities between individuals, nations, values, aspirations and realities. Unsurprisingly, many of us who can, have begun to get less compliant, less respectful of authority, more impatient, angry and restless for change and feeling more empowered to do something about it - though this potential empowerment isn't going down well with those in charge. Many of the Industrial Revolutions delivered enslavement for many and empowerment for the few.
This 4th Industrial Revolution shows many signs of going the same way. But looking at these technologies through an empowerment lens, the 4th IR has a greater potential for real empowerment than all the others, if we create it that way. Here are just a few examples of how technologies are or could be used for empowerment: The yin and the yang of the 4th IR. How will a vision, or a mantra of empowerment help make these sometimes scary innovations work for us all without causing more problems than they solve? I think it could, and it has to. Because the only thing which will help build the resilience of individuals and economies in the face of all this change is empowerment.
We have to do better than we did before.
Empowerment as an approach to innovation. The catalyst for this Empowerment Revolution must be a new approach to policy, research and industry strategy. People have many different names and ideas for these new approaches to economics, technology and governance, but empowerment needs to be at the heart of them all. Could it underpin new approaches and frameworks for governance and regulation? Our vision of involving stakeholders in the whole innovation and governance process empowers different values sets, different opinions and new ways of looking at the world.
