Government hosts major tech sector conference in Dublin
The Government will host a major conference in Dublin focusing on Ireland’s technology sector.
The Digital Ireland Conference will hear from speakers including the Taoiseach, Tánaiste and Government ministers as well as executives from tech companies such as Meta, Amazon, Google and Microsoft.
The one-day event will explore how Ireland can maximise its digital track record through the presence of leading global tech companies, start-ups and regulation.
Recent job losses at firms such as Twitter, Meta and Stripe have sparked concerns about the health of the sector but the Government, state agencies and industry bodies have insisted that the tech companies based here remain committed to Ireland.
How businesses can navigate the changing landscape of data regulation will be among the topics discussed at the conference which will include a contribution from the Data Protection Commissioner Helen Dixon.
Other issues that will be explored include balancing innovation, ethics and trust when it comes to artificial intelligence (AI).
There will also be a discussion on the future of immersive technologies.
