ECIPE & SIIA Seminar: The Future of AI in Europe

June 19 2018
Venue: ECIPE Office, Avenue des Arts 40, 6th floor, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Andrea Glorioso, Jeroen van den Hoven, Alex Cesar, Elisabeth Ling, Carl Schonander
Time: 12:00

ECIPE and the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) invite you to a panel discussion on the future of AI and AI policy development in Europe.

As Europe considers strategies for AI, what policy frameworks are needed? European policy proposals rightly emphasize ethics, the need for humans to maintain meaningful control of consequential decisions, providing incentives for investment in AI technologies, building up AI research centers, and addressing the shortage of AI-expertise and talent. In a tribute to these forward-looking policies, companies are setting up AI labs and research centers in Europe.
