On the same day as the conference, The United Nations International
Telecommunications Union (ITU) issued a press release promoting global wireless
technology including: regulatory sandboxes of enterprise; ‘start-up and experiment’
interfaces and 5G projects”. The ITU sponsored a symposium in Geneva and produced
“guidelines for encouraging policy and regulatory measures to facilitate the deployment
and use of emerging technologies for affordable digital infrastructure and services”.
Nowhere is the issue of planetary security, or health and safety addressed.
