TF6: Description

The task force will recommend policies to reform education, and provide opportunities for training and entrepreneurship by addressing the digital continuum within the changing labor market, challenges raised by the platform economy, and the implications affecting the young. It will create a global governance framework for data flows and artificial intelligence while illuminating the impacts of artificial intelligence and technological disruption on employment and workplaces. The proposals will highlight the digital gender gap, and initiatives available to develop practical and self-sustaining solutions to reduce cyber security risks and threats, and enhance data privacy. Motivated by the growing need to humanize technology, these recommendations will provide concrete and sustainable policy measures that maintain individuality, respect confidentiality, and encourage inclusion in the digital age.
