Panel: Next Generation Internet (NGI)
The internet of humans is a key priority in the
programme. This is to ensure that the immense potential of AI, of the physical internet, digital mediated interactions and our experience of immersive environments, and big data access be used to empower EU citizens to steer their lives and contribute to more inclusive and sustainable societies.
The NGI goal is to keep internet resources open and much more trustworthy. The EC
and four NGI projects present results.
Two thought-provoking academics challenge the ethical values and geopolitical policy context of the next generation internet developments.
