Digital Futures is a uniquely strong and expansive research initiative. It is a magnitude larger than any other Swedish research centres in the area and through a high-risk high-gain research agenda with long-term strategic perspectives competing with leading environments in Europe and in the World.

Digital Futures builds on strong traditions of internationally leading research environments at KTH, Stockholm University and RISE. The Centre provides a significant added value compared to other existing or recent centres and initiatives, such as ACCESS, AI Sweden, CAS, CASTOR, CDIS, Digital Demo Stockholm, ICES, ITRL, SMaRC, TECoSA, ViableCities, WASP, Wireless@KTH and many more.

Internationally, Digital Futures finds inspiration in and compares with Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) and Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research (BAIR) at UC Berkeley, Institute of Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS) and Schwarzman College of Computing at MIT, Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence, Einstein Center Digital Future in Berlin, Digital Futures at the University of Manchester, the Swiss NCCR Dependable Ubiquitous Automation with ETH Zurich and EPFL, and finally the Digital Transformation Institute with UC Berkeley, UIUC, MIT, CMU, Princeton, University of Chicago and Stanford.
