European AI Excellence and Trust in the world @ExpoDubai

On 15 and 16 March 2022, experts, academics, civil society representatives and artists will join to discuss the European approach for Artificial Intelligence at the World Expo in Dubai.

AI is a means, not an end. It has been around for decades but has reached new capacities fuelled by computing power and data availability. This offers immense potential in areas as diverse as health, transport, energy, agriculture, and tourism or cyber security. However, certain AI applications if used without care, may sometimes create complexity, risk the disruption of activities and processes or even harm human rights.

European AI Excellence and Trust in the world” aims to leverage the international stage offered by Expo Dubai to present how Europe sees the opportunities and complexities that AI may bring as well as what the Commission with its Member States do to build Excellence and Trust. Discussions between experts and policymakers will help to reflect the impact that such efforts have at an international level while a number of artistic installations collected from all around Europe will guide further reflections through a virtual walk.

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 through the European AI Alliance.

At the same time, Europe has progressed in its human-centric approach by proposing the world’s first legislative framework with requirements for Trustworthy AI.
