AI-Café presents: Europe’s quest for technology sovereignty

May 19th, 2022 (from 4 PM to 5PM CEST)

Description of the Talk:

What is happening with Europe? It has great universities and strong companies but is hardly a player in the modern technology sector. Does that matter?  For some years now,  we have heard European leaders, from Macron through Merkel and Scholtz to Van der Leyen, talking about technology sovereignty, digital sovereignty, and data sovereignty. Why this focus, what does it mean, and does Europe have the will and the tools to change its course?
