Abstract

This brochure summarises the key findings of the Digitranscope research project of the European Commission Joint Research Centre. The project set out to explore during the period 2017-2020 the challenges and opportunities that the digital transformation is posing to the governance of society. We focused our attention on the governance of data as a key aspect to understand and shape the governance of society. Data is a key resource in the digital economy, and control over the way it is generated, aggregated, and value is extracted and distributed in society is crucial. For this reason we analysed emerging governance models to distribute the value generated from data more equitably in society. The digital transformation, the rise of artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things offer also new opportunities for new forms of policy design, implementation, and assessment providing more personalised support to those who need it and being more participative throughout the policy cycle. The use of digital twins, gaming, simulation, and synthetic data is just at the beginning but promises to change radically the relationships among all the stakeholders in governance of our society.

Keywords: data governance, smart cities, digital transformations, AI, artificial intelligence, technopolitics, social innovation
