ETNO policy position on Data Governance Act
With the ever-growing number of data generated today, the EU needs the right governance model to unleash the potential of the data economy that could benefit to the society, citizens and companies. A key pillar of the EU Data Strategy (February 2020) welcomed by ETNO, the proposed Data Governance Act aims at boosting data sharing across sectors and member states while increasing citizens’ and companies’ trust and control over their data.

As the telecom industry can provide data market places and data broker services [1], ETNO welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback to the DGA and share its views to achieve a successful, competitive, and innovative single data market.

Artificial Intelligence – Excellence

Artificial Intelligence is everywhere and in Europe we want to become a hotbed of excellence in AI technology. The EU has already helped hundreds of projects using AI to kickstart their research thanks to EU funding.

The results? Diagnosing cancer is now faster and more accurate. Spotting fake news is easier. The buildings and structures around us are becoming more secure. Farms produce better quality food and our eating habits can become healthier. The impact of disabilities is reduced and transport is becoming safer. We have a better understanding of the human brain and of everything that surrounds us.

Thank you @Europarl_EN @EP_Legal for your exchange of views. I look at the #artficialintellingence from the perspective of ethics and #FundamentalRights. The @EU_Commission ’ s proposal for an #AI Act addresses human and social risks and aims to ensure trust in AI technologies.
