The start of 2017 presents an excellent opportunity to look back and reflect on last year. Which were the main highlights, and how did the developments shape digital policy?
Cyber-attacks using smart devices, new bilateral cybersecurity agreements, and discussions on the challenges surrounding advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) were among the main developments in the month of October.
New events and developments in the field of Internet governance gave rise to different dynamics throughout the month of September. The IANA stewardship transition process moved into its final mile, while the 2016 World Trade Organization (WTO) Public Forum dominated this month’s discussions on e‑commerce and trade. Developments also occurred in other Internet governance areas, such as taxation, net neutrality, and tackling extremist material online.
