UK: The UK Home Affairs Committee has issued a report titled "The Roots of Violent Radicalisation." In the report the Committee "recommends that internet service providers themselves should be more active in monitoring the material they host, with appropriate guidance, advice and support from the Government." It also calls on the British government to "work with internet providers to develop a code of practice for the removal of material which promotes violent extremism."
OECD: The OECD's Science, Technology, and Industry Directorate released a report entitled Machine-to-Machine Communication: Connecting Billions of Devices (see also accompanying blog post)on the Internet of Things). The report "examines the future of machine-to-machine communication (M2M), with a particular focus on mobile wireless networks." The OECD's quarterly Information and Communication Policy News newsletter was published. It includes links to meetings and reports from the OECD over the past quarter.
OECD: The OECD held a workshop in the end of January on Benchmarking of Information and Communication Technologies in Health Systems. The workshop examined how OECD countries are implementing health-related ICT, and how effective government action has been in promoting the use of health-related ICT.
