Industrial AI: The first 100 days and beyond

The incoming European Commission has set itself the objective of putting forward a proposal on AI in its first 100 days, as well as prioritising investment in this key future technology. Within the EU, 2/3 of the value created by AI is attributable to the B2B sector, where Europe has a traditionally strong footprint.

Join key stakeholders from industry and the EU institutions for an afternoon discussion about the state-of-play in industrial AI in Europe, real-world examples, and opportunities and challenges ahead. We aim for an interactive discussion on the potential direction of the new Commission on AI. At the same time, we want to look beyond the first 100 days and discuss what is needed to further strengthen Europe’s role in the longer term, especially when it comes to leadership in the B2B space.
