CEPS Task Force on Artificial Intelligence - Second meeting - July 9, Brussels

Place du Congrés 1
B1000 Brussels

CEPS launched a Task force to try to bring the AI debate to a concrete discussion of outstanding ethical, governance and policy challenges. The Task Force will focus in particular on EU policy, but will also look at developments in other parts of the world. It will be composed of academics, industry players from various sectors, policymakers and civil society. And it will discuss issues such as: the state and evolution of machine learning; algorithmic accountability; strict and joint liability for damage caused by AI; algorithmic bias and non-discrimination; options for policy experimentation; and possible EU industrial policy measures to promote the smooth development of AI in coherence with the overall EU 2030 agenda.
