A Europe fit for the digital age: Empowering people with a new generation of technologies ~ ECHAlliance

The EU’s digital strategy aims to make this transformation work for people and businesses, while helping to achieve its target of a climate-neutral Europe by 2050.

Therefore, the EU’s strategies for artificial intelligence (AI) and data aim to encourage businesses to work with, and develop, these new technologies, while at the same time making sure that they earn citizens’ trust.

Reforming data protection to give people control over their data and help businesses comply.

Europe's Plan to Regulate AI

On February 19, 2020, the European Commission (“EC”) published a series of documents outlining its vision for Europe’s digital future.1Amongst these, the EC’s White Paper on Artificial Intelligence: A European approach to excellence and trust provides a roadmap of the rules that businesses may have to comply with in the near future.

These proposals are relevant for technology companies, but also for any company offering or using AI-enabled products or services, e.g., in sectors such as healthcare, transport, financial institutions and energy.

Risks for EU fundamental rights might result from the lack of human oversight, the use of data without correcting bias, or the way AI is used to perform content moderation.

By June 2020, the EC plans to publish an assessment list to help companies verify the application of the key AI requirements identified above.

It is to be expected that the proposals will be much debated in terms of proportionality, especially regarding the freedom to conduct business and respect for business secrets, two fundamental values in Europe.
