Much of the world already has broadband infrastructure in place to enable digital transformation. But network existence, deployment rates and status vary dramatically within and across countries and regions. And as the number of users and devices, data usage and expectations of speed and quality continue to increase rapidly, existing networks need to be updated or replaced to meet future demand. How can broadband infrastructure deployment best be accelerated and optimized? How do good practices and successful case studies differ between developed and developing countries? If the necessary backbone is already in place, what are the roadblocks to reaching the end-user? What is the role of infrastructure sharing, both within the telecom sector and with utility providers? How can regulators and government work with private sector to incentivize collaboration, create technology-neutral level playing fields and expand markets? How has the ongoing pandemic affected policymakers’ decisions and impacted upon national broadband strategies? What are current best practices in broadband deployment, how can countries learn from each other – and what are the pitfalls to be avoided?

The digital technologies surrounding us and informing every aspect of our lives provide us with enormous benefits, convenience and enjoyment. Rapidly evolving digital development opens up tremendous potential to improve lives further – but is accompanied by a growing awareness of potential danger. This includes fear of losing control, privacy concerns, feeling threatened or displaced by increasing automatization, and a mistrust of technology or the use to which it is put by governments and corporates. This balance between great technological promise and human concern is particularly obvious in the expanding field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). What current and upcoming solutions in AI are guaranteeing greater security, privacy, transparency, and accountability for citizens? Can those who monitor citizens also be monitored, and would this help create user trust? Can AI be used to fight corruption and fake news? Are we tackling the bias in AI fast enough? How much are we aware of AI in our daily lives, should we know more, and who should be responsible for educating us? What existing solutions put humans at the center of development, and what can be learnt from them? What will happen if we ignore the human aspects of AI development?
