Summary

We are excited to announce a new Forum Europe initiative - Artificial Intelligence 2018 - Developing a European Strategy for AI. On 18 October in Brussels, stakeholders will gather for a one day policy debate that will explore where Europe can lead in the AI revolution, and how it can shape global policy approaches. Discussions will be animated via panel debates, in-conversation interviews, tech-talks and keynotes.

 

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