100 DECISIVE DAYS FOR AI IN EUROPE
The next President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, has promised to propose a European approach to artificial intelligence within her first 14 weeks in office. From an industry perspective, however, it would be more important to find a future-proof and balanced approach than meet self-imposed deadlines.
AI INVESTMENTS IN RESEARCH: WHERE SHOULD THE MONEY GO?
The European Union and national governments are planning to spend significant sums on the development of artificial intelligence. Although this is good news for Europe’s position in AI, its success depends heavily on how and where the funds are actually spent.
THE EU'S QUEST FOR AN INTELLIGENT APPROACH TO AI
With the Communication on Artificial Intelligence, the European Commission has opened the debate on how to encourage the use of AI - and also maybe how to regulate it. While the Commission's proposal takes a rather optimistic view, there is still the danger of harmful legislation based on doomsday scenarios. In industrial applications, AI technologies such as machine learning are promising and challenging, but they are a long way from disrupting the legal and ethical framework.
