The OECD Digital Economy Outlook 2015 explores recent developments in the digital economy. The OECD report finds that Internet "users are increasingly concerned, 64% of respondents are more concerned about privacy than they were a year ago" even as few countries include online privacy in national digital strategies.The OECD also warns that the "Internet of Things" will lead to the rise of autonomous machines. Civil society groups are planning to report to the OECD at the 2016 Ministerial Meeting on the Digital Economy.
