UNE will create two subcommittees that will allow Spain to influence the international standards for AI, IoT and Big Data


The Spanish Association for Standardisation, UNE, are creating two new technical subcommittees on standardisation that will be the direct influence of Spanish interests in the development of International standards in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data.

The Spanish Association for Standardization, UNE, announced this during the seminar the Need for Standards in Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and IoT that took place yesterday in collaboration with the Secretary of State for Digital Advancement (SEAD).

Both subcommittees will be under the umbrella of the Technical Standardisation Committee, CTN 71 on Digital Enabling Technologies (DET) and will be referred to as

CTN 71/SC 41 IoT and Related Technologies and CTN 71/SC 42 Artificial Intelligence and Big Data.

During the session held yesterday, representatives from the Administration and industry in the IA and IoT sectors presented the problems facing their sectors and UNE presented the solutions that international standards are proposing for these issues.

UNE will carry the voice of the industry's experts in Spain to international and European standardisation forums that will develop key standards for their competitiveness.

The European Commission has designated AI and IoT as strategic areas in which standards need to be developed in order to provide technical support for the deployment of its policies and the effective functioning of the single market. Standards provide an effective response to the challenges facing organisations.

Support for the Digital Economy

In the recently report Support for Standardisation of the Digital Economy, developed with the collaboration of AMETICUNE analyses how Information and communications technology (ICT) standards will play a key role in ensuring the success of the digital single market.

Organisations interested in participating and influencing from Spain the development of these standardisation initiatives are invited to contact UNE, by email to jjimenez@une.orgbefore 25 November 2019.
