17.09.2018 – Fundamental Rights vs. Artificial Intelligence, together or separate?

The issue of AI- artificial intelligence is yet a buzz word and a very hot subject in EU, Europe, and also in Brussels.

Yet rather very few meetings, conferences are so far dedicated to fundamental rights, humanistic approach, code of conduct, ethical principles and consequences, as well as AI and gender balance.
Most of them focus very much on the business and economic opportunities, power/dominance and strategy.
They are not very inclusive either.


1. Bring the issue of fundamental rights in the context of AI to the broad audience
2. Educate and sensitize participants, media etc. that AI is not a threat as long as it is considered wisely and with respect for fundamental rights, ethical principles and transparency
3. As the technology goes faster than legislation, this first conference shall also put more light onto the subject and in fact be a strong voice in the creation of a code of conduct/AI principles inspiring any possible regulations, including Policy recommendations for the High Level Group on AI at the European Commission
