    European Commission Presents Digital Strategy on Data and Artificial Intelligence

    On 19 February 2020, the European Commission published its white paper on artificial intelligence (AI) – “A European approach to excellence and trust” (the White Paper). According to the White Paper, in simple terms, AI is a collection of technologies that combine data, algorithms and computing power for the benefit of citizens, businesses and the public interest in general. In essence, the White Paper sets out policy options on how to achieve a balance between encouraging the uptake of AI while addressing the associated risks through potential regulation.
