Artificial Intelligence & Society


The public hearing on Artificial intelligence & Society will be held on 1 February 2017 at the EESC premises, 99 Rue Belliard, room JDE 62.

Our guest speakers from academic, corporate and trade union backgrounds, will discuss the concept of artificial intelligence and how it works in practice.

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.
