The digital revolution was one of the main topics that Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki decided to discuss in his today’s expose. The Prime Minister asked important questions and drew attention to the merits of PiS.
Digital evolution, or the “fourth industrial revolution”, as Mateusz Morawiecki called it in his expose, is, in his opinion, one of the main challenges for Poland in the coming years, because digital solutions are an inseparable part of the everyday lives of millions of Poles.
– Electronic PITs, e-prescriptions, e-sick leaves – millions of Poles use them every day. The mObywatel application has already been downloaded nearly 10 million times, and the trusted profile is used by over 16 million users. By June 2023, over 17 million patients used the Online Patient Account – Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki enumerated in his expose.
Morawiecki in his expose: “Thirtysomethings from PiS led Poland out of the analogue era”
The current Prime Minister wanted to clearly emphasize in his speech that it was his party – Law and Justice – that was fully responsible for developing modern solutions for the needs of Polish society.
– It is thanks to these changes (introduced by PiS – editor’s note) that functioning today is much easier. And I also want to emphasize that these changes were worked on by people in their thirties in our government – pointed out Morawiecki, drawing attention to the fact that it was PiS who introduced a new generation of experts to parliament who led Poland from the analogue to the digital era.
In the next sentences of his speech today, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki drew attention to the challenges that Poland will face in the coming years due to the emergence of the digital era.
Word of the Year: Chat GPT
The Prime Minister mentioned that the word of the year according to the prestigious American weekly “The Economist” was “ChatGPT”, which in his opinion makes it clear that one of the main tasks of the new Polish government will be to find a solution to the changes that, thanks to the wider use of artificial intelligence, are to take place within everyday social life.
– What will our work look like when computers do more and more things better than we do? – Morawiecki asked from the parliamentary rostrum. – Will we find solutions in the future that will allow Polish engineers to actually work for Polish companies and not only constitute the strength of foreign giants?
These foreign giants, according to Morawiecki, are companies such as Google and Facebook, but also many lesser-known entities that deal on a daily basis with issues such as market research using Big Data technology or even the previously mentioned artificial intelligence. Morawiecki wants similar solutions to be developed in Poland, and for our country to further strengthen its position as an IT industry hub.
In the part of his speech devoted to new technologies, Mateusz Morawiecki said that he wants Poland to be one of the countries that, on the threshold of a huge digital revolution, will best adapt to dynamic changes and win the global race for the title of leader of the modern economy. At the same time, according to the Prime Minister, the country’s authorities must have a decisive influence on the scale of interference in the Polish economy as a result of the activities of companies such as Facebook (this is the Meta conglomerate, i.e. the parent company of, among others, Facebook and Instagram – editor’s note).
