Event: Digital Services Act – A new rulebook for the Digital Economy? (Brussels, 24 March 2020)

Since the Electronic Commerce Directive was adopted in 2000, the digital space has significantly evolved with the emergence of social media platforms, OTT and sharing-economy players as well as with the convergence of media consumption, and the explosion of user-generated content. Concerns about developments in the digital economy, including the rapid proliferation of online hate speech and disinformation, have spurred calls for a revision of the current rules, where it is argued self-regulation is not having the necessary impact. In this context the European Commission is expected to launch a review of the existing E-Commerce Directive through a proposed Digital Services Act, which would “upgrade our liability and safety rules for digital platforms, services and products, and complete our Digital Single Market.”

EPRS Briefing: Artificial Intelligence [What Think Tanks are thinking]

This note offers links to recent commentaries, studies and reports from international think tanks on AI and related issues.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is usually understood as the ability for a machine to display human-like capabilities such as reasoning, learning, planning and creativity. The ‘Holy Grail’ for many governments and companies seeking to benefit from the digital revolution, the first to invent and apply true AI could achieve an enormous advantage in economic and military terms. However, there are serious ethical implications in such potential developments. Many aspects of AI have already been applied since the 2000s in machines with sufficiently fast processing speeds, equipped with learning techniques and fed large amounts of data. Current versions of AI help to drive cars, beat chess champions, and offer excellent medical diagnostics, to take a few examples.
