This report, prepared by the OECD for the G20 at the request of Australia, provides policy directions for consideration by all governments through identifying, discussing and analysing a range of drivers at the root of the digital gender divide in order to bolster the evidence base and draw attention to critical areas for policy action.
There is a need to develop metrics to assess the effects of the IoT in different policy areas. This paper proposes a taxonomy for IoT measurement. It also explores potential challenges for communication infrastructures due to the exponential growth of IoT devices through the application of connected and automated vehicles.
This report reflects discussions at the OECD conference on artificial intelligence held in October 2017. There was broad agreement that the rapid development of AI calls for national and international policy frameworks that engage all stakeholders.
This study proposes a taxonomy of sectors according to the extent to which they have gone digital. The taxonomy accounts for some of the key facets of the digital transformation, and recognises that sectors differ in their development and adoption of the most advanced “digital” technologies, in the human capital needed to embed them in production and in the extent to which digital tools are used to deal with clients and suppliers.
This analysis examines dynamics of estimated firm mark-ups across 26 countries over 14 years. Price mark-ups are linked to measures of digital intensity of sectors in order to ascertain whether differences in exposure to digitalisation are related to differences in mark-ups across industries, and how this relationship has changed over time.
This study sheds light on the extent to which different types of employee skills are rewarded as industries go digital in an analysis of 31 countries.
The current OECD Guidelines on the Protection of Privacy and Transborder Flows of Personal Data are an update of the original 1980 version that served as the first internationally agreed upon set of privacy principles.
This paper examines recent policy and technology approaches to bridging the digital divide in rural and remote areas in OECD countries. It also includes a summary of common challenges and good practices to bring improved communication services to individuals and communities in rural and remote regions.
While the Internet can bring considerable benefits to children's education and development, it also exposes them to online risks such as access to inappropriate content, abusive interaction with others, exposure to aggressive marketing practices and privacy risks.
