Key takeaways & next steps:

  • Balancing the need for regulation to prevent misuse of technology with the need to foster innovation and progress is a complex challenge, especially given the rapid pace of technological development. 
  • Dealing with the impact of technology requires cooperation between countries, even if they are competitors, to create common rules and regulatory frameworks. 
  • The rise of generative artificial intelligence (AI) and other technologies poses challenges in the information space, including disinformation, deep fakes, and election interference. 
  • As technology advances, there is a need to ensure that citizens are educated and included in the digital transformation process, addressing concerns and fears while promoting digital literacy and participation.
