On July 4, 2019, the European Commission published a factsheet on artificial intelligence (“AI”) for Europe (the “Factsheet”). In the Factsheet, the European Commission underlines the importance of AI and its role in improving people’s lives and bringing major benefits to the society and economy. In addition, the Factsheet also describes the EU’s role in AI and the financial investments the Commission is planning to make in AI. The factsheet also includes some examples of projects conducted by the Commission in AI (including in agriculture, data and eHealth, public administration and services, and transport and manufacturing).
