British inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee talks about his aspirations for the future of the World Wide Web, now in its 30th anniversary year.

British inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee talks about his aspirations for the future of the World Wide Web, now in its 30th anniversary year.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is well underway: the Internet of Things, AI and virtual reality are soon to be commonplace in our lives. Yet fewer women than men are online, more than half the world remains offline, and developing countries are missing out on revolutionary opportunities.

This year's Richard Dimbleby Lecture is introduced by Richard’s son, Jonathan Dimbleby, from London’s Design Museum - also celebrating its pearl anniversary this year.

For the first time, the lecture will be followed by a Q&A, providing further insight into the importance of access to the web and how it can adapt to fight threats like fake news, unbalanced opinion, corruption and crime to realise its true potential.
