I'm a researcher in Semantic Web technology at Ghent University – imec, Belgium.
We're want to address the ICT-24 call with a Web technology stack, emphasizing:
Next generation ICT technologies are seen as having major impact on our society. The convergence among these technologies such as 5G, SDN, AI, and NFV is highly important.
The power balances between providers and users created by IoT and Big Data needs to be framed by European values, as discussed at the workshop on Personal Data Spaces and Privacy.
Another widespread concern, raised in Hub4NGI D2.1, is the abuse of Internet technologies causing threats or limitations to democracy and liberty.
At the workshop on Personal Data Spaces and Privacy, there was a discussion about how people need to better understand the effects of giving away personal data.
It is important to have an ethical framework in place for artificially intelligent and autonomous machines.
One of the topics raised in the Hub4NGI D2.1 deliverable that is worth discussing further, is a lack of control over Data.
