A whole week dedicated to European AI
Artificial Intelligence enthusiasts have much to choose from for their interest in AI between 15 and 16 of March.
European AI Excellence and Trust in the world is an event organised by the European Commission’s InTouchAI.eu in the frame of Expo Dubai.
The event will focus on the European approach for Excellence and Trust in Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI is a means, not an end. It has been around for decades but has reached new capacities fuelled by computing power and data availability. This offers immense potential in areas as diverse as health, transport, energy, agriculture, tourism or cyber security. However, certain AI applications if used without care, may sometimes create complexity, risk the disruption of activities and processes or even harm human rights.
The European Commission’s vision on Artificial Intelligence is based on the twin objective of excellence and trust. Such vision applies to both technological and not technological aspects of AI to foster socio-economic and environmental wellbeing while people’s safety and fundamental rights are at the centre of all efforts. Since 2018, the European Commission and its Member States have joined their forces to foster AI excellence from the lab to the market by accelerating investments, acting on national strategies and aligning AI policies. At the same time, Europe has progressed in its human-centric approach by proposing the world’s first legislative framework with requirements for Trustworthy AI.
On 15 and 16 March, the international stage that Expo Dubai offers will be leveraged to present the nuances that the EU approach reflects at a global level. To this end, policymakers, experts, academics, civil society representatives and artists from all around the world will join in a following series of events.
