PRESS RELEASE: Trust in Digital Life (TDL) will host a strategic roundtable on ‘Building Trust in Artificial Intelligence (AI)’ on 20 March in Brussels, with the support of the Representation of the State of Hessen to the EU. TDL will use the opportunity to create a working group on AI and to plan for further AI events with partner organisations across Europe.
In April 2018, the European Commission published its strategy on the significant opportunities offered by AI. This was followed in December by a ‘Coordinated Plan on Artificial Intelligence’. The roundtable will provide participants with the opportunity to address many of the topics identified in the EU’s strategy. In particular the session will:
- Make the compelling case for a successful AI-driven economy
- Address the perceived trustworthiness of AI systems
- Develop skills and technologies to further the widespread adoption of AI-based solutions
- Face the ethical, cybersecurity and privacy-related challenges
- Help Europe become a global leader in AI
The event will comprise representatives from academia, industry, and the European institutions involved in the wide-ranging questions around AI. The opportunities and challenges associated with all the topics under discussion are expected to provoke a lively debate, spark ideas and generate insights into how Europe can move forward into an AI future.
TDL Chairman, Amardeo Sarma, says, “Today AI is gaining increasing visibility not only within industry and academia but with the European institutions and the general public. Several of our members are closely involved in investigating the next steps in furthering the widespread adoption of AI-based solutions from a technology, policy and ethical perspective. We look forward to welcoming our guests to the first of many valuable discussions on the future of AI.”
