Ubiquitous Network Society (2004 - current)

Building on its earlier work on convergence the GBDe has prepared two papers on the potential impact of the Ubiquitous Society. This represents a preliminary exploration into some of the policy challenges that may arise and general approaches to solving them. Within this context the issue of RFID has generated a great deal of interest. The rapid development of easily-scanned electronic tags has stirred considerable controversy over access and use of the data stored on the tags.

The GBDe has signaled its intention to develop a multi-stakeholder dialogue to develop practical policy solutions and will continue its work on the ubiquitous society in 2008.
