In September, I was part of a delegation that advised the G7 on the future of work, big data, and artificial intelligence. It was called the i7. It was the first time it had been attempted and it was Diego Piacentini’s idea that he put into action. The video will give you a snippet of what we did while we were there.
How do we make the digital economy open, and secure? How do we make it work for everyone? These are hard questions to answer but I think when we work together like we did we will find answers. There will be some policy failures since we are all human. However, entrepreneurship is like that. I think there will be more successes than failures and hopefully, Canada will pick up the baton and do it again next year.
I learned some things while I was there and I certainly met some people that offered up some very intriguing questions that I am still cogitating over. I don’t think it’s important to answer the questions right away. Yesterday I blogged about regulating Facebook and Google. The first time I heard that question come up was at the i7 and now I am starting to really think a little more deeply about it.
It’s important for the G7 countries to lead. Diego got them thinking about leading. I was honored to be a part of it and made some new friends there.
