3rd AI4People Forum Meeting 2019 to be held on 6th November at the European Parliament

3rd October 2019, Brussels: The 3rd AI4People Forum Meeting of 2019 will be held on November 6th at the European Parliament, Brussels, where the outcome of AI4People’s second year of activity , the “Report on Good AI Governance: Principles, Priorities, Models of Smart Coordination, and Regulatory Toolboxes”, will be presented and further discussed.

The Report is the result of one year of joint work between AI4People’s Scientific Committee, Business Partners and Civil Society Organisations.

Launched in February 2018 with a three year roadmap, AI4People is a multi-stakeholder forum that brings together all actors interested in shaping the social impact of AI’s new applications, including the European Commission, the European Parliament, civil society organisations, industry and the media. The goal of AI4People is to create a common public space for laying out the founding principles, policies and practices on which to build a “good AI society”.

On behalf of AI4People and its partners, in November 2018, Prof. Luciano Floridi presented at the European Parliament “AI4People’s Ethical Framework for a Good AI Society: Opportunities, Risks, Principles, and Recommendations”- the result of AI4People’s first year of activity.

Following the “AI4People’s Ethical Framework for a Good AI Society: Opportunities, Risks, Principles, and Recommendations”, the activities in 2019 are focusing on “Good AI Governance”. The Recommendations of the aforementioned document and its 20 Action Points (AP) are the starting points upon which the 2019 activities are built on; most of the issues on how to assess, to develop and to support a Good AI Society entail complex matters of governance.

More details on the upcoming meeting and the new report will be shared in the coming weeks.
