The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the process of digital transformation and added urgency for governments and businesses to respond. A key challenge is how to govern and harness the surge in digital data for the global good.
In this programme, EuroCham will highlight the multidimensional aspect of data, and how the use of IoT has implications not just for trade and economic development, but also for human rights, peace and security. It also has an angle on how frontier technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence can empower digital transformation. Furthermore, it also explores how the handling of data may greatly affect our ability to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
