    Using artificial intelligence and big data is becoming an increasing conundrum in the drive for competitive advantage. Governments and industry are all developing AI game plans, but what does this mean and what are the social consequences? If you are an EU or national policymaker, what regulatory framework should you consider? Are the existing liability rules for defective products sufficient to deal with AI related risks? How can you navigate GDPR/ePrivacy compliance while ensuring successful and innovative AI projects? What is the role of Article 89 GDPR as a legal ground available to MS to influence the usage AI?

    Are European countries prepared for the broader societal impact of AI, such as job displacement and skills development? Will the EU approach put Europe at the forefront of AI related developments compared with the US and China? 

    We invite to join us for lunch to discuss and debate using big data and AI to drive competitive advantage and how will the European policy framework be developed to encourage innovation and mitigate risk. We have assembled a panel of experts who will share their views on and experiences with this important topic.
