Dear Working Group members,

please see the below “food for thought”.  This was sent to the MAG as we need to take a decision Wednesday on whether or not to charter a BPF on AI, IOT and Big Data.  At the same time, I wanted to send to the WG for review and comments, even while this years WG is not yet fully established (the charter was approved by the MAG, and all details are posted on the IGF website, but it still needs to be more broadly communicated).

Look forward to your thoughts.

> Dear Concettina,  Sumon,
> first, thank you for your willingness to look into merging the two proposals.  It was very helpful, and I think you have done a good job with very complex and very large topics.
> Please take the below as food for thought only.. and I look forward to hearing your thoughts as well as that of all MAG members.
> As I said, I think you have done a good job in the BPF proposal with very complex and broad topics.  At the same time, I find myself wondering if there might be an intersection between the work of the Working Group: Multiyear Strategic Work Programmme (WG-MWP) and some of these topics.  The topics suggested for the BPF are all important, all are broad topics, and still largely in an early stage.  
> This would be a good opportunity to take a careful look at the entire IGF ecosystem and build a robust multi-year program for some/all of these topics.   The WG would consider other topics too.   
> An outcome of the WG might be a proposal for a BPF or BPFs in future years, but we would also look at other IGF and non-IGF vehicles/partnerships to advance the issues.  In parallel, we could start some of the stocktaking activities proposed in the BPF, with the advantage that we would also be building a more comprehensive effort across and beyond the IGF ecosystem with the IGF community.
> Very much looking forward to your thoughts.
> Best regards,
> Lynn
