New technologies and standardisation: a roadmap and a White Paper

Artificial intelligence, blockchain and distributed registry technologies (DLTs) that have emerged in recent years have created a need for standardisation.

They also have an advisory role to other technical committees whose sector of activity is impacted by these new technologies.
