On 14 and 15 September 2021, members of the European and international community are invited to join Europe’s High-Level Conference on Artificial Intelligence.
The event follows up on the Proposal for a Regulation laying down harmonised rules on AI and the updated Coordinated Plan on AI, published by the European Commission on April 2021 as well as the previous editions of the European AI Alliance Assembly. The joint efforts of the Slovenian Presidency of the European Council and the European Commission in organising this event mark another important milestone aiming to bring policymaking efforts “From Ambition to Action" and turn Europe into a global hub of Excellence and Trust in AI.
The Conference will unfold around a number of inspirational speeches, panel discussions and breakout sessions featuring experts and policy makers from EU Member States, third countries, International Organisations, academia, civil society as well as business representatives. Each of the two days will be introduced at the highest-level by the European Commission’s Executive Vice President Margrethe Vestager, Commissioner for Internal Market Thierry Breton and Slovenian Minister of Public Administration Boštjan Koritnik.
How to participate
The High-Level Conference on AI: From Ambition to Action will be a hybrid event taking place in the Brdo Congress Centre in Slovenia. Given current COVID related restrictions, interested stakeholders can register to attend the event via live web streaming.
Join the discussion
To facilitate the interaction with the AI community in the frame of the event, the organisers have planned a series of blogposts and open discussions via the European AI Alliance. This will enable conference speakers and participants to shape the discussions and to debate next steps on how to advance human-centric AI on the global stage.
The European AI Alliance
The European AI Alliance is a forum that engages more than 4000 European citizens and stakeholders in a dialogue on the future of AI in Europe.
The forum was set up in parallel to the High-Level Expert Group on AI (AI HLEG) as broad multi-stakeholder forum that would, among others provide input from the different parts of society to the work of the AI HLEG and EU policy-making more generally.
The members of the European AI Alliance meet with experts, stakeholders and international actors in the field of AI in an annual assembly. The first edition of the European AI Alliance Assembly took place in June 2019. The second edition of the European AI Alliance Assembly took place in October 2020.
