On April 18, 2018, the Aspen Institute Germany hosted a „Digital Dish“ examining Germany’s Digital Policy in 2018: Priorities and Challenges. About 30 high-level guests were able to discuss with Members of the Bundestag Dieter Janecek (Alliance 90/The GREENS) and Thomas Jarzombek (CDU) the opportunities and challenges that digitalization holds for Germany and how they intend to ensure technological change will benefit society. The off-the-record discussion touched on a wide array of topics, ranging from artificial intelligence to data protection, the GDPR, digital infrastructure and digital education in schools and in the workplace. The conversation was moderated by Tyson Barker, Program Director at the Aspen Institute Germany. The event was co-hosted by Telefónica Germany.
Digital Dish is a regular series that brings one or two provocative thinkers together for an intimate, off-the-record lunch to discuss issues related to the most pressing tech policy debates. It features prominent speakers including policy-makers, elected officials, activists, innovators, thought-leaders, business representatives from both sides of the Atlantic and a mix of frontier thinkers on tech policy and specialists focusing on the U.S.-European relationship.
