Digital Switzerland Strategy
The Digital Switzerland Strategy sets the guidelines for Switzerland’s digital transformation. It is binding for the Federal Administration. For other stakeholders such as the cantons, communes, business, science and civil society, it serves as an orientation with the aim of making the best possible use of the opportunities of digital transformation for everyone.
The national cyberstrategy will be implemented in cooperation with the cantons, higher education institutions and business, in order that all actors can address digital challenges securely.
Lead: Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport, National Cyber Security Centre.
Swiss approach to regulating AI systems
By the end of 2024, the Confederation will draw up a proposal for a Swiss approach to the regulation of AI, taking into account developments in the sectors and at international level, particularly in the EU and the Council of Europe. The aim is to develop an approach in dialogue with all stakeholders that upholds human rights, democracy and the rule of law while promoting Switzerland’s capacity for innovation and growth.
Lead: Federal Office of Communications in cooperation with the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, the Federal Office of Justice and other federal agencies and bodies.
Application programming interfaces (APIs)
The provision of standardised interfaces enables seamless integration and interoperability of digital systems and data exchange. The number of APIs is to be increased in order to enable companies to build innovative and data-based business models and allow Switzerland to make data-based decisions more quickly in all situations, including crises.
Lead: Digital Transformation and ICT Steering Sector in cooperation with the departments.
