Federal Minister Anja Karliczek: "IDS is the engine of the European data airbus"

“My col­league Peter Alt­mai­er often talks about the data air­bus. The air­bus is the infra­st­ruc­tu­re, and the IDS is the engi­ne dri­ving it along”, says Federal Minis­ter Anja Kar­li­c­zek during the IDSA High Level Sta­ke­hol­der Event on 22nd Febru­ary. Pic­tu­re: Fraun­ho­fer IUK-Ver­bun

Fos­te­ring a com­pe­ti­ti­ve eco­no­my

Fos­te­ring a com­pe­ti­ti­ve eco­no­my “We intend to crea­te the de-fac­to mar­ket stan­dard
for sover­eign data exchan­ge world­wi­de”, as Dr. Rein­hold Achatz, CTO of thys­sen­krupp
and Chair­man of the IDSA Board, sum­ma­ri­zed the visi­on of the initia­ti­ve. As a key ele­ment of
a secu­re data sharing infra­st­ruc­tu­re, IDS con­tri­bu­te to the com­pe­ti­tiveness of the eco­no­my
by crea­ting secu­re and trusted data eco­sys­tems taking com­mon Euro­pean values into con­s­i­de­ra­ti­on. In times of digi­tal net­wor­king and the use of smart ser­vices, the­se values are essen­ti­al for com­pa­nies that want to deve­lop new, data-dri­ven busi­ness models in order to stay­com­pe­ti­ti­ve on the mar­ket.

Esta­bli­shing data secu­ri­ty and data sover­eign­ty across inter­na­tio­nal data mar­ket­pla­ces,
and deve­lo­ping inter­na­tio­nal stan­dards – the Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces Asso­cia­ti­on (IDSA)
pur­su­es the­se objec­tives by pro­mo­ting IDS as a key archi­tec­tu­re for inno­va­ti­ve data sharing
app­li­ca­ti­ons lever­aging arti­fi­ci­al intel­li­gence. During the “IDS High Level Sta­ke­hol­der Event”
in Ber­lin in Febru­ary, this initia­ti­ve, its latest achie­ve­ments, and its plans for the future intro­du­ced
to experts and deci­si­on-makers from federal minis­tries, lar­ge cor­po­ra­ti­ons, SMEs, asso­cia­ti­ons,
and rese­arch orga­ni­za­ti­ons.

IDS: Key ele­ment of AI
Federal Minis­ter of Edu­ca­ti­on and Rese­arch, Anja Kar­li­c­zek, empha­si­zed in her speech that
Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces are an important com­po­nent of a Euro­pean data infra­st­ruc­tu­re
and are the dri­ving force behind the Euro­pean “data air­bus” as plan­ned by Federal Minis­ter
for Eco­no­mic Affairs and Ener­gy (BMWi), Peter Alt­mai­er. This assess­ment is sha­red by Dr.
Alex­an­der Tet­ten­born, head of the Deve­lop­ment of Digi­tal Tech­no­lo­gies depart­ment at
BMWi: “Arti­fi­ci­al intel­li­gence – that is data at tur­bo speed: short laten­cy times, gro­wing respon­si­bi­li­ty
for auto­no­mous sys­tems, and many sta­ke­hol­ders. This is cry­ing out for the inte­gra­ti­on
of IDS as a key ele­ment.”
