As our world becomes increasingly digitized, and our lives filled with intelligent and connected products and services, many questions still need answering.
For example, how will we ensure our data privacy, security and personal safety as we use an array of diverse devices to carry out daily activities and who will be liable if something goes wrong?
Trust is key in our digital world
The Digital Trust Forum to be held on 16 May aims to initiate an ecosystem of leading industry organizations, which can help shape a framework for enabling trust in the digital world of intelligent and connected products, which are supported by IoT and AI-based systems.
The Forum will be hosted by Michael Bolle, Bosch Chief Digital Officer and Chief Technology Officer, as a side event during the two-day Bosch ConnectedWorld (BCW) conference in Berlin.
“Emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Big Data are fueling the digital transformation and its promise to transform the way we live, work and play for generations to come,” says Wael William Diab, Chair of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 42 (Artificial intelligence), who is presenting the role IEC and ISO standards have to play, during the Forum. “Early consideration of trustworthiness along with ethical and societal aspects during the standardization of these technologies, as we are doing in SC 42 and discussing at the forum, is essential to widespread adoption and ultimately ensuring their successful role in society.”
Other participants include EU Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, Mariya Gabriel who will open the discussion, several standardization development organizations and international alliances and consortia working with IoT and AI technologies.
On the agenda
The Forum will address how international organizations in industry can pool together and find solutions, through the establishment of a trust framework, and what concrete actions can be taken, for example, in relation to governance and certification.
Discussions will focus around defining the digital trust scope, dimensions – ethics, quality, privacy, security, reliability, resilience, safety and liability – and stakeholders.
