Artificial intelligence, Europe and you – what should or must be done?
Time: 13.15-14.00, Concert Hall
The power of artificial intelligence - for both good and bad - has recently been the subject of keen interest from politicians, business leaders, academia and citizens around the world and in June 2023, the European Parliament adopted its negotiating position on the AI Act ahead of negotiations with Member state governments and the European Commission on the final shape of the law. Once adopted, the European Union will be the first region in the World to legislate on the use of AI. The aim of the Act is to ensure that AI developed and used in Europe is in line with EU rights and values including oversight, privacy, transparency, non-discrimination and environmental wellbeing.
But how should the EU and the Member states proceed in order to both safeguard against perceived dangers linked to AI and still benefit from AI technology in areas such as health care, education, public administration, internal market competitiveness and environmental protection?
