The rise of big data, automation, blockchain, CX, UX, behavioural science and artificial intelligence are among the key trends shaping the future of the research, insights and analytics industry. Advances in technology are disrupting traditional methodologies and creating new methodologies that are driving the continued growth of our sector. CRIC is establishing Thought Leadership Councils to help the industry be at the forefront of these major trends. One thought leadership council will focus on data analytics and AI and the other will focus on trends impacting qualitative research. These councils will comprise leaders from both clients and agencies who will explore what’s next and share actionable recommendations that will help all members stay ahead of the trends.
