A collection of tech-sector trade groups including the Internet Association and Digital Europe is urging leaders from the world’s top 20 economic powers to focus on policies that encourage broadband deployment and adoption, and job skills training for the digital workforce when the G20’s Digital Economy Task Force meets next week in Argentina.  Also on the tech groups’ policy push-list are those that would lower barriers for small and medium-sized businesses by discouraging restrictions on cross-border data flows and avoiding data localization requirements.  The groups also urged G20 officials to promote the development of artificial intelligence technologies, and refrain from “speculative regulation” that does not target demonstrated harms.
