Organization founded in 2018. The European AI Alliance is a forum that engages more than 3000 European citizens and stakeholders in a dialogue on the future of AI in Europe.
Goals of the AI Alliance
Given the scale of the challenge associated with AI, the full mobilisation of a diverse set of participants, including businesses, consumer organisations, trade unions, and other representatives of civil society bodies is essential. The European AI Alliance will form a broad multi-stakeholder platform which will complement and support the work of the AI High Level Expert Group in particular in preparing draft AI ethics guidelines, and ensuring competitiveness of the European Region in the burgeoning field of Artificial Intelligence.
How the AI Alliance platform works
The platform encourages broad participation in the policy-making process of the European Commission. Members of the Alliance will be able to engage in discussions with each other and the experts of the AI HLEG in a dedicated forum. Feedback will also be sought on specific (closed or open) questions, as well as on draft documents prepared by the AI HLEG under a section dedicated thereto. A specific events section will keep members informed of the upcoming relevant meetings and events which the Commission is organising, or in which it is taking part, and members will also be able to register their own event on the platform. In addition, Members will be able to access official documents on AI, and contribute reports and papers to an open library.
In June 2019, 500 members of the group met in the European AI Alliance Assembly to discuss the latest achievements in AI policy and its future perspectives.
