dotLab’s research incorporates key enabling technologies that are catalysing digital transformation including cloud computing, social, mobile, analytics and blockchain technologies. Each of these technologies independently and together are sources of innovation and in combination with other innovations, such as the internet of things, robotics, natural interfaces, cognitive systems are accelerating industry transformation.

dotLAB is structured into five main applied research labs as follows: finLAB @ IIDB explores the interface between digital technology and modern financial innovation. learningLAB @ IIDB focuses on how digital technologies can transform learning experiences and business processes. subculturesLAB @ IIDB takes a multidisciplinary approach in the examination of themes related to digital subcultures. trustLAB @ IIDB examines the interfaces  between people, organizations and technology. workLAB @ IIDB takes a multidisciplinary approach to consider the ways in which digital transformation is transforming work.
