Data, AI, Digital Services: Trust in a Re-imagined World

As Europe revamps the framework for AI and the data that feeds it, several questions emerge. We discussed the following at the 2nd edition of Tech & Politics Forum by FT-ETNO:

  • What guidelines will enable progress while protecting all citizens?
  • Is a European model for data services and AI emerging?
  • How can we take back control of our data, and ensure that it works for us rather than against us?
  • How to espouse privacy, security and public health?
  • Is Europe best placed to lead on – and regulate – AI?
