Past Session: The European Approach to AI: What is next?

July 7, 2020

The European Commission released its long anticipated white paper on Artificial intelligence in February this year, before Covid-19 caused the shuttering of much of Europe’s economy. The White Paper carries as its subtitle – “A European approach to excellent and trust”, and sought to create a synthesis between trust and ethics, the skills agenda, a focus on where Europe can lead with impact, while providing a regulatory framework that remains flexible as technology develops.

This Qualcomm and Forum Europe Tech Policy Talk will seek to re-energise the discussion on Europe’s AI journey and reflect on lessons learned to date on our relationship with and use of technology through the pandemic, and how this might inform the future approach.
