The United Nations launched a new tech report that includes a “declaration of digital interdependence”. According to the report, the digital future must be safer and more inclusive.
The report notes the risks faced by mankind, like exploitative behavior by private companies, a failure to realize human potential, and the stifling of necessary regulation. It explores the ways that digital technology can help achieve the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and how digital tech relates to human rights and security.
Several recommendations are contained within the report, related to inclusivity, trust and cooperation, female representation and timely action.
