Policy Brief analyses Europe's approach to Artificial Intelligence

-

The European Commission has recently published a working paper which analyses the current situation in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how Europe is currently carving out a position towards a more thoughtful, ethical approach to AI. The paper entlitled 'AI research and innovation: Europe paving its own way' states that the EU ranks among global leaders when it comes to AI science, but there is an AI innovation gap when compared to the United States and China. This includes, for instance, the number of AI firms and the share of firms active in AI patenting. Most unicorn companies in the AI field are also based in the United States and China. At the same time, the EU has been leading in promoting trustworthy, ethical and human-centric AI.
