CONSULTATION ON EUROPEAN DATA ACT

Recognizing the impact of data driven economy by the EU is now a certainty. Data is recognized now as an essential resource similar to energy or food – thus ensuring a proper governance. Access to data is considered to generated between 1-2.5% of EU GDP,  a value estimated to 7-11 billion EUR by 2028 (savings of 1.3 trillion EUR in manufacturing and 120 billion EUR in the medical sector).

Our work group has issued a position paper with amendments which can further improve this proposal, find it at ClujiIT Data Intelligence Consultation on Data GovernanceAct Position Paper

CID 2020 – ADOPTING AI FOR SOCIETY AND BUSINESS PANEL

The combined effect of digital transformation, COVID-19 pandemic and automation creates a ripple of changes throughout the entire global society. All these factors are catalysts for large scale adoption of AI at various strata of the society: from policy makers and strategic decision makers to SMEs and individuals. Whomever will be able to survive and thrive through this disruption – will be one of the dominant players of the years to come.

The panel”Adopting AI for society and business”, which we had the honor to moderate, addressed this topic from the perspective of an EU policy maker, a manager and a scientist: ms. Annika Linck – EU Policy Manager at Digital SME Alliance, mr. Iustinian Sovrea – CEO at jPard and mr. Razvan Florian – CEO at RIST.

We would like to share the presentations as well:

ms. Annika Linck:       Challenges of AI uptake in Europe from the perspective of SMEs
mr. Iustinian Sovrea:  Management without managers in the AI Era

Finally we would like to offer our thanks to the speakers and to our audience as well!
