We are witnessing an exponential acceleration of society. Technology is invading our everyday life: connected cars will soon be autonomous, medical care is increasingly assisted by artificial intelligence, there’s the Internet of Things, robotics, big data,... Right after the 3rd industrial revolution, the 4th is coming, with digital technology as its catalyst. Very soon, robots will be everywhere, both the physical robots that we already know and the logical kind: algorithms.
Under the 2017 presidency of Estonia, the European Union has accelerated its digital agenda: the "free movement of non-personal data" is becoming the "5th fundamental freedom", after the free movement of goods, capital, services and people.
On top of this new framework, new cybersecurity measures are being taken to better protect EU citizens and businesses in the digital age.
