Online Talk, February 25: Roles for the EU in AI Governance


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is everywhere. It is taking on every aspect of our modern lives, and increasingly so. The EU, on the other hand, is trying to regulate these rapid developments. In 2016, it implemented the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which protects citizens’ data vis à vis big enterprises which need this data to develop AIs. This has important political, economic and technological implications, which we want to investigate further.


Therefore, we are thrilled to invite you to our next online talk, on February 25th, titled “Roles for the EU in AI Governance”. During this talk, you will get to understand better the current state of AI in the EU, its regulation, its opportunities, and its impact. For this purpose, 3 experts will be joining the event:


Professor Joanna Bryson. Professor Bryson is an expert in AI governance and its impacts on human cooperation, AI ethics, and AI ethics policy making. She is a Professor of Ethics and Technology at the Hertie School of Berlin and has been nominated by Germany to the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence.


Professor Andrea Renda. Professor Renda is a Senior Research Fellow and Head of Global Governance, Regulation, Innovation and the Digital Economy at the Centre for European Policy Studies think tank. He is an expert in regulation, the impact of new technologies on policy making around the world, and evidence-based policy making. He is highly knowledgeable about the European Union specifically.
