In a global context where emerging players such as China and India look set to outpace Europe and the US in the consumption, delivery and advancement of digital services and technology, partnership becomes all the more important. Participants in this working group will consider how the 4th Industrial Revolution is impacting differently on both continents, what the commonalities are, and what effective transatlantic cooperation could look like, not least in the context of the advent of a new US administration following the November 2016 election.
The following questions will be addressed:
- Are we ready for a transatlantic digital market place?
- Where could joint regulation and policymaking bring benefits?
- How can transatlantic cooperation on the 4th Industrial Revolution position us to compete and contribute effectively in a rapidly changing global digital landscape?
- How can we overcome difficulties of data sharing and matters of privacy? Will matters of security be the proxy for improved sharing of data?
