Europe’s unapologetic data ambition:
a note from EU telcos

 
Digital transformation has led to data becoming a key asset, but also a production factor in its own right. Consumers enjoy a wealth of new data-based services and Europe’s industrial base is trying to catch the wave and increase its global competitiveness. The European Commission has recognised this trend and, this week, it presented an ambitious “Communication on a European Data Strategy”, which was welcomed by ETNO.

Telecom companies will have a major role in delivering on Europe’s data ambitions, but also in promoting a trust-based model for the data economy. Here are our views in a blogpost signed by Paolo Grassia, ETNO Director of Public Policy.

To boost EU AI, we want to attract more than €20bn/year during the next 10 years. AI is all about data. To use it at large scale, we need to pool it. We’ll create a single market for data in the EU & want to trigger investments of €4-6bn in EU data spaces & cloud infrastructures

Global data volume is estimated to grow from 33ZB in 2018 to 175ZB in 2025. How much is that? Something like 281 trillion MP3 audio files. #Data can feed applications to improve our businesses and our everyday lives. How? Tune to #DigitalEU to find out! https://bit.ly/37AEmcj
