Artificial intelligence (AI) progressively comes to play a crucial role in the EU economy, setting up the stage for a prosperous, more innovative, and smart continent. Increasing investments in technologies while sticking to ethical rules and transparency are at the heart of the EU’s digital transition. The aim of the webinar is to understand the EU Institutions’ perspective on how innovation can be fostered by the industry while remaining coherent with our European values.
