Press Release: Artificial intelligence in Europe – no one must be left behind, says EESC

The development of artificial intelligence in Europe should be as broadly inclusive as possible, the EESC says in its assessment of the European Commission’s Coordinated Plan on Artificial Intelligence. Policy should ensure civil society reaps the numerous benefits of AI while minimising risks such as the manipulation of democratic processes.

In its opinion on the European Commission’s proposed Coordinated Plan on Artificial Intelligence, the EESC stresses that AI-related policies must be designed so as to engage all social players, including businesses, workers and consumers. This means ensuring the accessibility of data and infrastructure, the availability of user-friendly products and access to knowledge and skills.

Press Release: Too much information – better ways to manage data

The emergence of cheaper, better technology in the field of molecular biology is enabling the sequencing of the genomes of millions of individual humans and other animal species. This generates enormous volumes of data, and the ability to analyse it is critical to understanding biological organisms and treating diseases.
