The goal of the Next Generation Internet (NGI) is an European Commission project designed to enable a hyper-connected society that embodies the values that Europe holds dear: openness, inclusivity, transparency, privacy, cooperation, and the protection of data. From a technological point of view, the NGI brings together advances in Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things and new Media platforms for synchronous and asynchronous interaction, communication and collaboration.
Multilingual and inclusive, the NGI will eliminate language barriers through high quality automatic translation, enable personalised learning with automatically generated learning paths tailored to individual needs, and offer truly accessible ICT so that physical and cognitive differences will not form a barrier to being a fully digital citizen.
The Next Generation Internet Forum is an opportunity to share knowledge with leading experts from across the a variety of disciplines. While attending, you can contribute to the dialogue on the best way to meet the ambitious goals, and contribute to mapping the NGI ecosystem. The event will be structured using a mixture of specialist talks, open discussions and interactive working groups, with an emphasis will be on stimulating discussion and the free exchange of ideas between members of the research community, SMEs & startups, industry, policy makers, and civil society.
