The digital transformation is causing some of the most profound societal challenges of the 21st century. This year’s COVID-19 crisis has accelerated the move toward digitization, drawing out aspects of inequality, even as they enable new forms of economic and social resilience. It has also accelerated existing power dynamics on the global stage in the digital realm. In a conversation with Rüdiger Lentz and Elisabeth von Hammerstein, Dr. Eric Schmidt will share his views on a number of issues including current tech policy dynamics on the global stage, AI’s impact on geopolitics, Europe’s quest for digital sovereignty, to name a few. What are Covid-19’s implications on foreign policy and security issues? What are the pandemic’s broader societal impacts and how does the pandemic affect tech dynamics and diplomacy between Europe, the US and China? What can we expect from Joe Biden’s election as the new president of the United States with regard to the big tech-challenges ouf our times?
