Since 2018, the European Commission's High Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence (HLEG) has been supporting the implementation of the EU’s AI strategy. Next month, the new European Commission will release a coordinated European approach on AI. On January 7 the White House proposed new AI regulatory principles to govern the development and use of AI technologies in the private sector. This follows the launching of the American AI Initiative signed by President Trump in February 2019.
How do the U.S. and the EU approaches compare? How can they together lead the development and deployment of AI in a trustworthy manner, based on shared transatlantic values, to ensure the maximum benefit of AI to society and economy? Join the Delegation of the European Union and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace for a discussion of these issues.
