Artificial Intelligence: a blueprint for unions and telecom companies

Technology and digital innovation have drastically transformed work and employment in unprecedented ways. Though they are not new as such, AI technologies have gained new momentum and, together with big data and robotics, they have rapidly evolved and changed the way we work. These technologies are expected to significantly impact the labour market of the future, particularly as traditional jobs and tasks transform or disappear, and new ones emerge.
 
The European social partners in the telecom sector, UNI Europa ICTS and ETNO, acknowledge the beneficial potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for innovation, e.g. in the area of medicine, mobility or communication.
 
With this Joint Declaration, the European social partners in the telecom sector wish to contribute to the general debate on AI and to provide guidance to the sector stakeholders regarding the opportunities and the risks that AI represents.

5G Users Forum: Empowering EU Smart Cities
A dialogue series by ETNO

The year of 2020 has seen 5G roll-out and uptake on the rise in Europe, being deployed commercially in different corners of the continent. More and more Europeans are becoming aware of 5G and some of its benefits, but what can 5G do in concrete terms for local communities?
 
On 7 December, we continued the digital tour around Europe, this time landing in Portugal and Bulgaria, with the aim of allowing speakers and attendees to learn more and exchange on what 5G can do for Europeans in a Smart City environment. Leading policymakers gave an overview of the state of play in key policy files that will shape the Smart Cities of tomorrow.
