CATCH UP ON OUR LIVESTREAMED SESSIONS
DAY 1 - September 30
DAY 2 - October 1
Artificial intelligence has infiltrated every aspect of our lives, from the way we work and communicate to how we treat diseases. The Covid-19 pandemic has intensified the focus put on the technology and raised questions such as: Is AI a silver bullet to address global crises? What new privacy concerns have arisen over the use of AI?
Meanwhile, AI is also redefining the global balance of power. While the U.S. and China stand as the world’s frontrunners, because of their development of cutting-edge AI applications and their capacity to attract investments, Europe wants to lead the way on digital policies by setting the conditions for the development and use of AI. GDPR, digital competition and online copyright are some of the major policy areas that the last Commission implemented to give the bloc a competitive advantage. But will the new European Commission be able to keep up with Europe’s unfinished digital legacy when the technology is evolving quickly and investments are being allocated to other parts of the world?
Taking place virtually on September 30 and October 1, 2020, POLITICO’s AI Summit will tackle key questions about the future of AI global regulation and the technology’s implementation, such as:
- How is the Covid-19 pandemic impacting Europe’s policy priorities?
- What is happening across the globe? And what are the key alliances that are emerging between countries and regions worldwide?
- Should AI development be limited? How can the biases in the use of AI be addressed? What are the biggest consequences and challenges of automation in industry?
- Is AI a cultural question? How does the interpretation of “trustworthy” differ from a country to another, and how does it impact AI development across the globe?
- Can the EU push its case for creating international rules in a future world of artificial intelligence and robotization?
- What are the EU and member states doing to facilitate access to capital, data and skills needed to support AI growth and develop strong AI solutions?
For the third consecutive year, POLITICO is convening high-level and international leaders with stakeholders from industry, research, academic, and civil society to discuss, debate and examine the new AI world order and the role of Europe in the years to come.
