On 17th of May we celebrate the World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD) and mark the anniversary of the signing of the first International Telegraph Convention and the creation of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

The WTISD aims to help raising the awareness of the possibilities that the use of the Internet and other information and communication technologies (ICT) can bring to societies and economies, as well as of ways to bridge the digital divide.

The theme of WTISD-18 is Enabling the positive use of Artificial Intelligence for All and is focused on the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to accelerate the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
