AI strategy in Europe

  • Elisa Cauhe (EGI.eu)

Description

In recent years Artificial intelligence (AI) has brought a technological revolution becoming a key driver of economic development worldwide. In order to reach enough scale and avoid the fragmentation of the single market, the adoption of a common European approach is required.

The White Paper published in February 2020 presented the policy options to enable a trustworthy and secure development of AI in Europe, in full respect of the values and rights of EU citizens. In this document the European Commission puts forward an European approach to AI based on three pillars: (1) being ahead of technological developments and encouraging uptake by the public and private sectors; (2) being prepared for socio-economic changes brought about by AI; (3) ensuring an appropriate ethical and legal framework.

This session will introduce the AI strategy of the European Commision and its funding priorities within the next Digital Europe Program and some of the current initiatives playing a relevant role in the AI Excellence ecosystem. Finally, we will have the opportunity to discuss the EGI AI strategy and how the EGI service offer can evolve with AI to better contribute to the Digital Transformation in Research.

Main target audience
Service providers, researchers, policy makers.
