#FactOfTheDay 15/06/2018 – The European Commission launches European Artificial Intelligence Alliance
By appointing 52 experts in the field of artificial intelligence (AI), the European Commission launched yesterday the European AI Alliance with the purpose of setting up a collaboration platform to help build a community of stakeholders. The experts will advise the Commission aiming at drafting ethical guidelines by the end of 2018 and setting recommendations by mid-2019. The experts themselves will also have the possibility to get contributions for stakeholders through the Alliance. The platform, which will thus facilitate multistakeholder dialogue on how to advance AI innovation to increase trust and adoption, and to inform future policy discussions, was a key topic at the G7’s Charlevoix Common Vision for the Future of Artificial Intelligence and so it is for the Declaration of Cooperation on AI signed by 28 European countries.
Just a few months ago, Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society Mariya Gabriel stated in this regard that “technology must always be used in the citizens’ interest and respect the highest ethical standards, promote European values and uphold fundamental rights. That is why we are constantly in dialogue with key stakeholders, including researchers, providers, implementers and users of this technology. Our work to build a Digital Single Market is essential for encouraging the development and take-up of new technologies”.
