  • Public Hearing - EESC - Room JDE 62, Brussels, Belgium

    AI technologies offer great potential for creating new and innovative solutions to improve peoples lives, grow the economy, and address challenges in health and wellbeing, climate change, safety and security.

    Like any disruptive technology, however, AI carries risks and presents complex societal challenges in several areas such as labour, safety, privacy, ethics, skills and so on.

    A broad approach towards AI, covering all its effects (good and bad) on society as a whole, is crucial. Especially in a time where developments are accellerating.

    At the public hearing Artificial Intelligence & Society, the EESC will start the discussion with participants from all corners of society on the broader impact of AI.

    The input and information gathered at this hearing will be implemented in an EESC Opinion on Artificial Intelligence that will be presented during the Plenary Session on 31 May and 1 June 2017 and feed into EU policy on AI.

  • Conference - Room JDE 62, EESC, Brussels, Belgium

    Triggering radical change in the way we buy, exchange or even value goods and services, the collaborative economy, the functional economy and the circular economy have had a considerable impact on businesses, consumers and workers. In its 2016 opinions on all three economic models, the EESC has recognised both the potential of these new models for Europe's sustainability as well as the uncharted legal territory they bring with them. Taking our work to the next level, we have joined forces with the Global Hub for the Common Good, to enrich the European debate with input from communities directly involved in these new economies.
