Durante la conferenza, il Presidente di I-Com Stefano da Empoli ha presentato uno studio su temi quali interoperabilità, standard, e-privacy, eSkills, HPC e l’impatto dell’IA sulla società europea. L’innovazione guidata dai dati e l’intelligenza artificiale potrebbero fornire agli Stati membri dell’UE un nuovo potenziale di crescita economica e sociale e per questo motivo, durante la conferenza associazioni dei consumatori, rappresentanti dell’industria, funzionari della Commissione europea e deputati europei hanno discusso di tali opportunità e sui loro attuali limiti.
