Digitization is causing social change. This raises questions about safety, discrimination, influence and the power of technology companies. We also see that digitization is burdening our environment and our climate and has a major impact on the energy system.

Technology supports social issues in a responsible way

By 2023, we are working on initiatives and programs that initiate the transition to a sustainable and responsible digital region.

To ensure that technology responsibly supports social issues in the region, we are working on three initiatives that complement each other: AMdEX, Datacommons and the Health Data Infrastructure. Datacommons researches and develops collaborative agreements for the fair sharing of data for a societal good, AMdEX researches and develops technology to digitally capture and enforce these agreements, and the Health Data Infrastructure researches and implements both topics for medical data. Our Amsterdam Smart City program has been working on responsible use of data for a sustainable living environment for more than thirteen years and will continue to do so in the coming years.
