German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Germany’s digital sector must be a «success story,» speaking at a digital summit held in the Bavarian city of Nuremberg on Tuesday.
«This has to become a success story, as the social market economy was. Prosperity for all, this must be the future tune in this age of digitisation,» Merkel stated.
She then warned that after «seventy years of social... Еще market economy» in the service of humans, digitisation must not advance in the expense of individual privacy by harvesting people’s data «behind the scenes.»
Because according to Merkel, «the final consequence is the destruction of individuality and that can’t and mustn’t be our goal.»
