AI SUMMIT: INNOVATION & GOVERNANCE 2019
WHAT IS EUROPE’S PLACE IN SHIFTING THE AI WORLD ORDER?
As governments across the world are developing national AI strategies with specific recommendations about how to leverage new technologies, work has begun at all levels to decipher how these recommendations will be interpreted and implemented. At EU level, AI will be at the agenda of the informal meeting of European telecom ministers, held on March 1 in Bucharest, and the Commission is set to release a suite of ethical guidelines on April 9 to shape the evolution and adoption of AI technology in Europe.
Taking place on March 18-19 2019, POLITICO AI Summit is returning to Brussels and will gather global leaders to discuss issues at the intersection of innovation and governance. The event will be the launching point for solutions-driven conversations between policymakers, scientists, innovators, industry representatives, startups and academics.
Since the launch of our inaugural AI Summit in March 2018, POLITICO has advanced the conversation about governance of new technologies both in Europe and the US through an AI & Governance newsletter, a series of stand-alone POLITICO AI roundtables in London, Paris and Berlin and an American edition in Washington, DC.
We’d love you to join the 2nd AI Summit and contribute to the debate on important issues like:
- Is Europe shifting the AI world order?
- What impact is machine learning having on work in Europe and how are — or should — policymakers be responding?
- Is the way we educate young Europeans positioning them for success in the evolving jobs market?
- From ethics committees to regulations — existing or emerging, what current enforcement frameworks are already in place, where are the gaps, and who should be responsible for ensuring baseline criteria are met?
WHY IS THIS SUMMIT UNIQUE?
