The European Commission has updated guidelines for digital strategy based on the growing concern on people’s data and large corporations control of such information. Following in the wake of landmark legislation like the European Union’s GDPR, the EC created a digital framework in a series of white papers delineating new approaches to artificial intelligence and personal data. The white papers are mean to push further action as people’s data is more and more being used for commercial purposed with little checks on privacy.
- The European Union’s European Commission has updated its digital strategy in the the form of three papers detailing a framework.
- The report from the Commission mostly covers new advances in the world of technology like AI (artificial intelligence) and data use.
- This is in addition to the GDPR from the EU. The EC is mostly concerned with privacy in the age of big data and large tech companies like Google.
“Needless to say, it doesn’t seem like these companies are going to willingly jump on board with the EU’s new plans to take control of their data — they’ll likely fight tooth and nail to preserve what is effectively their primary competitive advantage.”
