For a safer and less uncertain world

Welcome to our series of topical articles where we discuss the impact accurate measurement and calibration have on the world and our everyday lives.

A better way to a sustainable future

Measurements are behind many of the daily actions that we take for granted, like buying food, filling our vehicle’s gas tank, switching the lights on at home, or taking medicine.

Accurate measurements ensure that we get the right amount of food, fuel, and energy, and that our medication is safe. They ensure communities can function well and provide the foundations for safer and more sustainable businesses and societies.

Whether building a sustainable future, supporting the circular economy or developing the next generation of technology, our purpose is to help make a safer and less uncertain world. 

The rise of AI and the need for accurate data

As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to generate vast amounts of data, questions arise about its accuracy. As a result, concerns have been raised about the reliability of AI-generated data, and whether it is truly representative of reality.

It is essential to continue exploring the accuracy of AI-generated data, and to openly discuss any limitations and biases that may exist.

Lessons in bias and transparency with Generative AI

Generative AI has exploded into the public consciousness since the turn of 2023. Its ability to generate images, compose songs, make videos and write scientific papers has captured the imagination of millions, with ChatGPT setting a record for having the fastest-growing user base.

Ensuring sustainable lifestyles for 8 billion people

Earth is now home to more than eight billion people. Thanks to reduced childhood mortality, increased life expectancies and improved healthcare, the global population has almost tripled since the 1950s. At its current rate, we will hit 10 billion people by 2050. Is this milestone in human development a cause for alarm or a chance to redress and recalibrate global inequity in resources? How will we care for the growing global population?
