UN takes big step towards a digital future

UNITED NATIONS, June 11 (APP):The United Nations has launched a new tech report that includes a “declaration of digital interdependence” calling for the digital future to be safer and more inclusive.

The report, released Monday by a high-level panel set up by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres almost a year ago, describes humanity as being “in the foothills” of the digital age. It also lays out the risks faced by mankind, such as exploitative behaviour by private companies, a failure to realize human potential, and the stifling of necessary regulation.
