What Is the European AI Alliance?

A Forum that Engages More Than 3000 European Citizens

After the launch of the European AI Strategy in April 2018 a High-Level Expert Group on AI (AI HLEG) was created. This group drafted a document on AI Policy and Investment Recommendations. The European AI Alliance was set up in parallel to the AI HLEG. It was seen as a multi-stakeholder forum that could give input to EU policy-making more generally. Input received from the AI alliance after presentation of the Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI (another report) was part of creating the policy and investment recommendations.

AI HLEG is the steering group of the AI Alliance.

It is possible to join the forum online. If you register for the AI Alliance you can access a platform in EU called Futurium.

In June 2019, 500 members of the group met in the European AI Alliance Assembly to discuss the latest achievements in AI policy and its future perspectives.

The goals of the AI Alliance is the following:

  • Full mobilisation of a diverse set of participants including businesses, consumer organisations, trade unions, and other representatives of civil society
  • In particular helping to prepare the ethics guidelines and ensuring competitiveness of the European region in the field of Artificial intelligence.
  • Piloting the Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI.

Thus what can be said is that one should follow this development closely if one is interested in the field of artificial intelligence. In particular it would be good if you are interested in policy related to artificial intelligence, regulations and ethics.

This is #500daysofAI and you are reading article 206. I am writing one new article about or related to artificial intelligence every day for 500 days. My current focus for 100 days 200–300 is national and international strategies for artificial intelligence.
