European AI Regulation Workshop

The European Commission released its first draft of a European AI regulation. It proposes a risk-based approach to regulating high-risk AI products and banning certain applications. The goal of the regulation is to generate trust in AI solutions and create a safe and human-centred AI ecosystem in Europe. We are very pleased to be joined by one of the leading figures behind the proposal:

European AI Forum - 2nd Edition

Following the success of the first European AI Forum held in June, the second edition aims to check in with policymakers in Brussels and Member States to examine new developments relating to AI in terms of digital and green policies and business uptake.

On the last days of the German Presidency and as a new Trio takes the Council of the EU helm, European AI Associations invite you to join us in finding the right answers on :

 


Strengthening European AI to compete worldwide

To this day Europe falls short in providing a European equivalent to the big American and Chinese technology companies even though potential, expertise and knowledge are abundant. On this panel, entrepreneurs, experts from science and policymakers illuminate the current Status Quo of European AI and discuss possible future strategies, incentives and policymaking needed to push forth a competitive European AI.

Making Europe a climate neutral continent with AI

This panel discusses the potential that lies at the application of AI to the challenges of climate change and for the protection of our environment. It seeks to identify the framework needed for this objective, the possible ways of using AI in and for sustainability and evaluates what impact can be ultimately hoped for.

The State as the first client: A model to ignite Europe’s AI industry

At the moment, European AI R&D is still in a fledgling state, largely due to a lack of critical mass of demand that is needed for the AI industry to flourish. To ignite the AI ecosystem, Member States have the potential to be the ideal first client by seeking AI solutions to some of the public sector’s key challenges.

European AI Forum - 1st Edition

The COVID pandemic has revealed unprecedented challenges in Europe and the rest of the world. What possibilities does AI offer to master current challenges, enable new opportunities and business models  and further develop a European economy taking full advantage of digitization, data and AI?

On the last days of the Croatian Presidency and as a new Trio takes the Council of the EU helm, European AI Associations invite you to find the right answers on:


Challenges ahead for European AI

The European Union is bracing for a slow and gradual recovery from the COVID pandemic. To support its citizens and businesses, the EU has proposed a €2 trillion recovery fund to be built into the EU’s next long-term budget. What will the impact of the recovery be on our economy, our healthcare and our culture? Can AI play a role? The aim of this panel is to examine how to confront the aftermath of the pandemic, especially in the context of economic recovery and new technologies.

European AI regulatory framework

What is the balance between innovation and regulation? Can regulation support innovation or is it more of a hindrance? At the end of the consultation on the EU’s White Paper on Artificial Intelligence, the response is mixed. It is undeniable, however, that Europe must take its own approach to innovation and regulation than the USA or China. But how to create a common framework for artificial intelligence in a Europe of 27 national states? It is clear that Europe only has a chance on the global AI market if a common European solution is identified.

European digital infrastructure for AI

Today's issues regarding the recovery of the economy address high challenges to AI. How are European players going to take their part in these challenges ? Is the development of AI in Europe going to further draw companies and citizen in the dependency of non-European AI & data solutions ? Or are we at the turning point to develop a "European AI and Data Community" or an "AI - Airbus" ? The Gaia X project may be the solution.
