Catelijne Muller

Member, European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and Rapporteur on Artificial Intelligence

Catelijne Muller is a member of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and Rapporteur on Artificial Intelligence. In May of this year, the EESC adopted an opinion on the impact of artificial intelligence on society. The EESC has identified 11 areas where AI raises societal concerns, ranging from ethics, safety, transparency, privacy and standards to labor, education, access, laws and regulations, governance, democracy, but also warfare and superintelligence. Muller advocates a human-in-command approach to AI, where humans retain control over AI at all times, but also where humans are in command of it, when and how AI is used in our daily lives – what tasks we transfer to AI, how transparent it is, if it is to be an ethical player.
