BRUSSELS – Today, technology industry trade group ITI, the global voice of the tech sector, released the following statement from president and CEO Dean Garfield regarding the European Commission’s strategy on artificial intelligence.
“Artificial intelligence will revolutionize society in ways we have not seen before. Unlike technologies before it, AI will transform society horizontally – impacting every industry at the same time. We applaud the Commission’s proactive proposal to prepare the region for this emerging technology. As both policy and technology develop in parallel, we will continue working to ensure the responsible design and deployment of AI systems. We look forward to continuing to work with the Commission to ensure a balanced policy approach to AI, which promotes innovation while mitigating any unintended consequences.”
Last fall, ITI released the first-of-its-kind AI Policy Principles to help guide lawmakers on this new technological frontier.
