Standards and Emerging Technology

A panel of experts will discuss the role of standards in the digital economy, covering topics like data privacy, blockchain, AI and IoT.

What's it all about?

Commentators say we are on the edge of a Fourth Industrial Revolution, which will bring together emerging technologies in new and powerful combinations. 

The digital economy is a core part of this transformation. It influences the way we interact, our economic landscape, the skills needed for jobs, and even government decision-making. This emerging economy has the potential to generate new scientific research and breakthroughs, fuel job opportunities, drive economic growth and improve our lives overall – if we get things right.

With increased digitisation comes significantly more data. It comes pouring in from an increasing number of sources, including sensors and devices that form the Internet of Things (IoT), from social networks, research data, government data, and from an organization’s own systems.

We’re fast reaching a crossroads where important decisions need to be made about how we capture, store, retrieve and use all of this valuable information in the emerging digital economy.

Join Standards New Zealand as we host a panel of experts to discuss the role of international standards in the digital economy, covering topics such as data privacy, blockchain, and other emerging technologies.
