Example text

In fact, there are many models within Europe, and these models will find themselves increasingly in competition. Some Common Challenges Despite the emphasis on differences between the United States and Western Europe, there was some discussion of challenges that both societies face with regard to information technology. Both societies, for example, will have to arrive at workable methods for allocating and protecting intellectual property rights in an information age. One participant noted different European and American perspective on this issue.

It was noted that speech recognition and generation systems are being increasingly used by the blind, and other differently-abled groups (such as those with forms of dyslexia). There remains a big difference between the effectiveness of speech recognition systems tuned to individual users and the lesser capabilities of those systems meant to be used by a wide variety of users. Since technology developments in information systems and communication were the subject of a previous conference in this series, it was felt by the session moderator and conference organizers that the main purpose of this current session was to quickly review those developments, and concentrate on differing perceptions between Europe and other regions regarding how such developments would be received (or suppressed, if possible) and used.

27 Governments, Markets, Businesses, Other Players In contrast to the United States, participants in the previous conference believe that Europe is generally more skeptical about information technology, not viewing it as a good in itself. Similarly, Europe does not believe that “free” markets should determine, in uncontrolled ways, the outcomes of the information revolution. Nineteenth-century industrial capitalism, they argued, might not be right for the new knowledge economy. Rather, Europe embraces a stronger role for government policy to safeguard shared values in the information society.
