Digital leaders and regulators to gather in Dublin

Tech leaders, regulators and policymakers will gather in Dublin Castle today for the Digital Ireland Conference.

Panel discussions will focus on digital regulation and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Ukrainian Deputy Digital Minister Georgii Dubynskyi will take part in a virtual discussion on Ukraine’s cybersecurity journey.

Other speakers will include executives from companies such as Microsoft, Google, Amazon and OpenAI, the firm behind ChatGPT.

John Evans, the Digital Services Commissioner at Coimisiún na Meán will be taking part, so too is Dr Patricia Scanlon, Ireland’s AI Ambassador.

The Digital Ireland Conference is hosted by the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment.

“As a small, open economy, Ireland has been hugely successful in attracting eight of the global top 10 information technology companies to establish a significant presence here,” said Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Peter Burke.

“We are the second largest exporter of computer and IT services in the world. We also have a dynamic domestic innovation ecosystem, with the third highest number of unicorns per capita in the EU.”

“Ireland is at the heart of the digital transformation, both as a home to a vibrant digital economy, and through our key role in the EU, in particular in the digital regulatory space,” Mr Burke said.

Tomorrow, Ireland will host a meeting of the D9+ group, an informal alliance of Digital Ministers from the digital frontrunner EU Member States.

“Tomorrow’s meeting of Digital Ministers marks the high point of Ireland’s six-month chairmanship of the D9+ which is running from January to July of this year,” said Minister of State for Trade Promotion, Digital and Company Regulation, Dara Calleary.

“Our meeting is timely as we look ahead to a new Commission, new Parliament, and an updated strategic agenda for our Union,” Mr Calleary said.
