The next European Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen, has stated “In my first 100 days in office, I will put forward legislation for a coordinated European approach on the human and ethical implications of artificial intelligence”. Despite some warnings from research and technology stakeholders that hard rules could impede innovation, legislators across Europe are keen to quickly set standards for AI.
This session will kick start the day’s debates by offering up a vision of what human-centric, ethically sound AI might look like. Our expert witnesses will bring examples of where AI is already making a difference. Each expert will deliver a 10-minute case study followed by a 10-minute interview drawing out key themes to take into the policy debate in the next session.
Taking into account the European Commission president-elect Ursula von der Leyen’s statement on the human and ethical considerations for AI; the policy recommendations outlined by the High-Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence; as well as the vision for AI laid out by our expert witnesses today, this session will feed into discussions around how to make sure any proposed legislation balances security and protection of privacy with openness to innovate.
To realise the potential of AI at scale, Europe will need to invest significantly in infrastructures capable of powerful data analysis. But to make sure investments are made wisely and are future-fit, more emphasis also needs to be given to research and understanding how different stakeholders can use data to maximum effect. This session will look at possible methods of compiling open public data currently locked in siloes and further increasing secure access to data through data protection compliant B2B sharing mechanisms. Panellists will also discuss the role of the EU in supporting Member States to ensure infrastructure investment is well coordinated across Europe amid strong global competition.
