On 18 October in Brussels, stakeholders gathered for a one day policy debate that explored where Europe can lead in the AI revolution, and how it can shape global policy approaches. Discussions were animated via panel debates, in-conversation interviews, tech-talks and keynotes.

 

Forum Europe's AI conference took place following a period of reflection on the European Commission's AI initiative announced in April, and came on the back of the high-level ministerial meeting in Finland on AI.
