OKRA’s CEO Loubna Bouarfa has been appointed as a member of the European Commission’s High Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence in a personal capacity, convened to support the implementation of the European strategy on AI within the digital single market. This will include the development of recommendations on future AI-related policy development and on ethical, legal and societal issues related to AI, including socio-economic challenges.

Moreover, the AI HLG will serve as the steering group for the European AI Alliance’s work, interact with other initiatives, help stimulate a multi-stakeholder dialogue, gather participants’ views and reflect them in its analysis and reports.

“I’m honoured to be appointed to the High Level Expert group on Artificial Intelligence (AI HLG) and confirm my commitment to support this European initiative on AI. Uplifting human outcomes using AI can only happen if the right regulations and policies are applied on machine learning system development and production to effectively impact health, safety and freedom of the wider society.” OKRA’s CEO Loubna Bouarfa
