Workshop “Artificial intelligence – European answers, solutions and challenges”



On April 27, the representation of the European Commission in Germany hosted a series of events in Berlin which are related to the new European Initiative on AI. The delegation of the Vice President of the European Commission, Andrus Ansip, who is also responsible for the Digital Single Market triggered a discussion around the topic of AI, which should address the implications for Europe on the ethical, socio-economic and industrial level.

TU Berlin has invited selected scientists and stakeholders to an expert workshop “Artificial intelligence – European answers, solutions and challenges”. The research and industrial AI community and corresponding startups in Berlin exchanged views on the necessary research questions and industrial needs in the context of the European Commission communication regarding AI, published in April, that foresees research money with significant amounts.

Our prominent guest Carl Buhr, Deputy Head of Cabinet of commissioner Gabriel took input on the AI questions of the future and the conditions for R&D friendly surroundings the European Union and the Member States need to implement. The workshop participants were invited to an open and critical discussion also about the questions of strengths and weaknesses of the European business location.
