'Dialogue on Emerging Tech: Issues of Digital Autonomy for Australia and Europe'
The European Union and Australia both face similar challenges in the wake of advanced and increasingly globalized technologies. While both countries/regions are well-placed to access leading research and development, technological interdependence remains a particular challenge for the EU as well as for Australia (and its role in the Indo-Pacific.) As advanced technologies, specifically artificial intelligence, become more intertwined amidst heightened geopolitical competition, achieving digital sovereignty has become a key objective. In light of AI innovation - advanced robotics, advanced computing, integration of advanced technologies into smart city infrastructure, autonomous weapons, etcetera - what exactly does it mean for the European Union and Australia to manage dependencies and achieve digital autonomy?
This session will address artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies enabled by AI and how advanced technologies are provoking national and regional efforts to achieve digital sovereignty.
