This year as well IGF Serbia will debate over topics spotlighted by the international Internet community and the United Nations Internet Governance Forum. We will talk about challenges in digital space, in the world and in our country, bearing in mind the current complex geopolitical situation. How to maintain and improve coordination and governance and what is the future of the Internet in general?
We will discuss digital rights and the challenges brought by the issue of digital surveillance, the digital footprint we all leave when using digital technologies, what our rights are in the digital environment, the manners of their violation, mechanisms for their protection and realization.
The second part of the programme will be dedicated to sessions focusing on artificial intelligence and business conditions in the IT industry. During the panel Artificial Intelligence Between the Technologies of Rights and Freedoms, the technological level of algorithm development will be considered, together with the views of international organizations and supranational institutions on the challenges created by the development of artificial intelligence and on the challenges that await legal science in future. The IT business in context of the economic crisis and emerging technologies is the topic of a panel, where speakers from Serbian IT companies and organizations related to the IT industry will attempt to identify both the challenges and the opportunities brought by continuous changes in market conditions and technologies.
