The window for the EU to establish an AI strategy that will strengthen its position in the global digital economy is rapidly narrowing. While Europe has many assets to build a strong AI ecosystem, it also trails behind its peers in terms of adoption, commercialization, and investment. In addition, European policymakers need to establish a regulatory environment that promotes innovation and enables European businesses to access the data necessary to train machine-learning algorithms. What are the priorities the EU should focus on in the coming months? How should policymakers strengthen R&D and retain talent? And how can Europe create a foundation for future innovation in AI?

Join the Center for Data Innovation for a video webinar with experts from industry and government to discuss Europe’s near-term AI priorities.
