The Interoperability Unit of DG DIGIT and the Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) are organising a multidisciplinary Science for Policy Conference on 'Artificial Intelligence for the Public Sector'.
Artificial intelligence in the public sector is currently often associated with efforts to regulate or facilitate AI in daily life. At the same time, applying AI in the public sector is frequently not without serious obstacles, such as the security of personal data or the qualification of public sector staff.
In this regard, the conference will provide an opportunity for policy makers, public sector officials, scientists, and representatives from civil society to jointly contribute to the identification of the most relevant needs and goals of AI, with a strong focus on the scientific and technological angle, as well as with best practices from experiences across Member States and local administrations.
Four webinars will be heldfrom 7 to 9 June covering four different topics:
The Regulatory perspective
The Trustworthiness of AI applications in the public sector
AI in practice and implementation strategies
Bringing AI closer to citizens and smart communities
On 22 June, a physical Policy round table will take place in Brussels at which Commissioner Mariya Gabriel (Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth) and Commissioner Johannes Hahn (Budget and Administration) will both be present.
