AI fit for Europe: Interinstitutional Considerations on How to Move Forward

“AI fit for Europe: inter-institutional considerations on how to move forward” with Anthony Whelan, Philip Boucher and Dejan Dvorsek



Dear Members and friends of IIEA Brussels,

IIEA Brussels is delighted to invite you to join us for our next event on Wednesday 24th September 2021 at 19h00, with Anthony Whelan, Digital Policy Adviser, EC President’s Cabinet, Philip Boucher, policy analyst at the EP’s Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA) and Dejan Dvorsek, Slovenian PermRep (current Council rotating Presidency), to discuss “AI fit for Europe: inter-institutional considerations on how to move forward”.

Life is changing and we can feel it. With the widespread use of algorithms in both the private and public spheres, Artificial Intelligence, commonly referred to as AI, is already all around us. What seemed like science fiction only a few years ago is becoming a reality – self driving cars and buses, drone delivery of coffee, AI assisted financial investment, AI assisted health care delivery and pandemic control. But how about Elon Musk or Mark Zuckerberg’s plans to integrate AI technology into the human brain? What about the use of AI by law enforcement?

In short how far can it or should it go?

As part of its digital agenda, the European Commission has proposed harmonised rules on AI across the EU, with a risk based approach based on EU values. What does this actually mean in practice? Where does the balance between fundamental rights and public security lie?

We are delighted to invite you to a high-level panel with three distinguished speakers from the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council Presidency.

The event is finished.
