The European Commission has presented the latest strategies to shape Europe's digital future, regarding data, AI, the Internet of Things and Robotics. Many ideas from the High Level Expert Group (HLEG) on AI have been used to create the White Paper on the European approach to AI excellence and trust.
The Commission's White Paper is one the first steps to achieve a digital transformation "made in Europe." According to Commissioner for Internal Market, Thierry Breton: "Our society is generating a huge wave of industrial and public data, which will transform the way we produce, consume and live. I want European businesses and our many SMEs to access this data and create value for Europeans – including by developing Artificial Intelligence applications. Europe has everything it takes to lead the ‘big data' race, and preserve its technological sovereignty, industrial leadership and economic competitiveness to the benefit of European consumers."
At OKRA, we will make every effort to ensure that Europe succeeds in the intelligence race.
