The European Commission presents next steps for building trust in Artificial Intelligence

Building on the work of the group of independent experts appointed in June 2018, the Commission is launching a pilot phase to ensure that the ethical guidelines for Artificial Intelligence (AI) development and use can be implemented in practice. The Commission invites industry, research institutes and public authorities to test the detailed assessment list drafted by the High-Level Expert Group, which complements the guidelines. In January this year the guidelines were open to comments, where BDVA gave input to the document.

In the next steps the Commission plans to set-out the seven key requirements for trustworthy AI, launch a large-scale pilot phase for feedback from stakeholders, and work on international consensus building for human-centric AI.

Members of the AI expert group will present their work in detail during the third Digital Day in Brussels on 9 April.
Furthermore, to ensure the ethical development of AI, the Commission will by the autumn 2019: launch a set of networks of AI research excellence centres; begin setting up networks of digital innovation hubs; and together with Member States and stakeholders, start discussions to develop and implement a model for data sharing and making best use of common data spaces.
