Germany Must Close Digital Technology Gap

Digital Technolgy going to become new face of  world. Germany must learn to “promote not impede,” the use of artificial intelligence, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s chief of staff said, as it seeks to close a digital technology gap between it and other leading economies.

Merkel Ally’s cabinet is holding a two-day retreat next week, at the end of which it wants to present an artificial intelligence (AI) strategy to help Europe’s biggest economy adjust to the digital coding

Germany has been at the forefront of industrial innovation for decades, but policymakers have been late to realise that its export model, based on traditional manufacturing, is vulnerable, and it is struggling to catch up.

Even standard bearers such as Volkswagen and Daimler are vulnerable, with the likes of Uber posing a threat to mass individual car ownership.

This platform becomes the standard of asset-light companies. Mostly the companies which use artificial intelligence. Computers are trained to solve of crunch data and digital services.

In a presentation late on Wednesday. Chancellery chief Helge Braun said,  “We want to push ourselves damn hard to make this topic a big success,”

He said the government would focus on how to gather more data, support AI research, retain skilled workers and encourage them to found start-ups – and how to position digital regulation “that promotes and does not impede all this”.

“We’ve got a lot of homework to do there,” he said.  “Noting that in many countries firms made innovations and the state regulated afterwards, whereas in Germany. “There is generally a ban anyway.”

Technology for the people

First Nazis and then by Communist East Germany’s Stasi secret police look over the privacy and personal data of Germans. Merkel believes it is time to move forward.

A member of her Christian Democratic Union (CDU), Braun said Germany should set borders in the field of artificial intelligence to produce “technologies with high ethical standards”.

“For a party with ‘C’ in its name this must be clear – we will include up-front a sentence with all issues on technology, digitalisation, and AI: ‘technology must serve the people’,” he said.

Braun made no mention of upgrading Germany’s broadband network. The government has pledged to provide nationwide access to the high-speed Internet. This will help to inovation in digital field to digital era to technology

A 2017 Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development study ranked Germany 29th out of 34 industrialised economies for fast Internet connections. Japan and South Korea lead the pack.

Merkel has made fixing Germany’s digital deficiencies a priority for her fourth and almost certainly final term. She said “our future prosperity depends on it.”

Adel Al-Saleh, chief executive of Deutsche Telekom unit T-Systems, told an automotive congress on Thursday that his company would invest EUR 20 billion ($22.84 billion) over four years on network upgrades and planned to provide 5G coverage for 90 percent of Germany’s population by 2025.

Digital Technology:

Digital describes electronic technology that generates, stores, and processes data in terms of two states:

  • positive
  • non-positive

1 represent the positive and 0 reprents negative. In digital technology, Data stored and transmit in the form of 0 and 1. These state digits are known as a bit.

Prior to digital technology, electronic transmission was limited to analog technology. It conveys data as electronic signals of varying frequency that are added to carrier waves of a given frequency. Broadcast and phone transmission has conventionally used analog technology.

Digital technology is mostly used in new physical communications media, like satellite and fiber optic transmission. A modem is used to convert the digital information in your computer to analog signals for your phone line. Then convert analog phone signals to digital information for your computer.
