The world is changing. Open societies are now at the digital crossroads associated with choices involving the Internet, machine learning, 5G/6G, cloud computing, quantum technologies, commercialization of space technologies, encryption, online content, intellectual property, cyber-defense, and several other digital issues. Leaders around the world face a series of key choices as to what paths they want to take associated with these digital issues.
This special Atlantic Council session will discuss tech issues tied to the future ahead, the US elections, and the global digital challenges that must be remedied as well as core digital opportunities that provide ways of ensuring that new technologies and data empower people, prosperity, and peace.
