With the coronavirus pandemic, the role of AI in the health care sector is being even more intensively discussed than before. Can machine learning help detect patterns in the data or help automate processes to avoid physical contact? The tone of the debate around regulating AI has changed due to the pandemic and there are more calls for regulators to go easy on the technology’s rules in order to not slow down innovation. The debate is only just beginning.

14:30 PM – AI, how artificial and how intelligent is it?
The workshop starts with a background check on the topics at stake. What are the current trends around AI, what is artificial and what is intelligence? How to define AI in order to make policy discussions meaningful in the future? Not all AI systems are data driven, and different systems might need different regulations.

The European Commission has presented its strategies for data and Artificial Intelligence and published a AI Whitepaper. We analyze the politics and policies behind the EU’s approach towards AI and what it means for investment and research, but also how the geopolitical reality plays into the debate.
