      Well, not technically 'now'. It's been doing this for a while.

    2. The NSD outline delves into the interaction between the process of developing technical standards and driving forward technological innovation.

      Clear in many other previous docs also...

    3. Why is the Chinese government pulling out all the stops on its standardization program in the current political climate?

    8. Global growth could also benefit from a prolonged period of accelerated technological change, which may, over time, become a positive side-effect of the pandemic. Many corporations were forced to innovate in order to survive the initial pandemic shock, rapidly adopting new digital technologies and shifting some of their business activities online. If sustained, the acceleration of digitalization brought on by the pandemic could contribute to faster productivity growth (Hallward-Driemeier et al. 2020; IMF 2021a; Mischke et al. 2021). The installation of new productive capital such as telecom-munications equipment could contribute to a rise in total factor productivity, in contrast to the declines experienced after some past global recession

      Again about how digital tech could drive productivity growth.

    9. continued rapid adoption of digital technologies could help sustain a more robust global economic recovery than projected.

    1. Mobileye is developing two completely independent self-driving systems—one driven by cameras and the other by a combination of lidar and radar. Once each of these systems has achieved a high level of performance separately, Mobileye will combine them into a single system. Mobileye believes this extra layer of redundancy will give the company higher confidence in the safety of its systems
