A new chapter in the debate on AI development has started in light of the discussions on the Data Strategy, the new model for the Digital Single Market, the need for an industrial policy 4.0 and the passing of the Digital Services Act.

The economic dimension and aspirations of the European digital advantage must be linked with societal, cultural, political and even psychological views of the future. All of the above mentioned are necessary and key to the future of European competitive advantage.

At this stage of the debate on the future of AI and digital issues in the EU, we need to take a holistic view and develop a broad understanding of many aspects of digital development. During out discussion we will look at the best future regulatory framework, the management patterns and oversight of the AI systems development.

Artificial Intelligence is changing our world. We cannot afford not to utilize, nor do we have time to lose with regard to its development.
