Strategic Intelligence

Watch video

The World Economic Forum has developed its Strategic Intelligence capabilities to help make sense of the complex forces driving transformational change across economies, industries, and global issues.


Many of us find it difficult to keep up with the latest trends and to make sense of the countless transformations that affect us. How can we expect to be able to decipher the impact of these changes when we are being flooded with so much information - some of it misleading and unreliable? The World Economic Forum has developed Strategic Intelligence to help us understand the global forces at play, and make better strategic decisions in this increasingly complex and uncertain environment.

Our Approach

The Transformation Maps at the centre of this system incorporate expert and machine-curated knowledge allowing users to visualize and understand 200+ topics, and the connections and interdependencies between them. The Transformation Maps are co-curated with experts from universities, think-tanks, international organizations, or other research institutions. Each map has a feed with the latest research and analysis drawn from leading research institutions and specialized media outlets around the world.

Topic Areas

Explore and get clarity on key strategic issues covering more than 200 topic areas. Access the most relevant publications, videos, data, events, initiatives, and stakeholders in those areas.

Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

Robots and artificial intelligence were once used only for dull and difficult work on factory floors. Today, automation is everywhere - powering drones, cars, and surprisingly - realistic humanoids - and everyone must be prepared to live and work in a world increasingly shaped by artificial intelligence.

Climate Change

In 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned of punishing environmental impact if emissions are not curtailed sufficiently to prevent even 1.5°C of warming. Effective climate action requires commitments from businesses, organizations, cities, and regions.
