AI Watch, an initiative of the European Commission (EC), joined hands with the AI4EU initiative to bring AI experts and enthusiasts with more comprehensive landscapes of European AI.
AI Watch, which was jointly developed by the EC joint Research Centre (JRC) and the EC’s Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CONNECT) since 2018, will use AI4EU platform as one of its dissemination outlets for the latest reports in AI. AI Watch is monitoring industrial, technological and research capacity, policy initiatives in the Member States, uptake and technical developments of Artificial Intelligence and its impact in the economy, society, and public services. It provides several analyses necessary to monitor and facilitate the implementation of the European Strategy for AI.
Besides providing the new partnership with a platform of dozens of thousand users, AI4EU also offers the referrals of AI experts including AI pricing experts, AI for Health, etc… The AI4EU Platform’s networking and collaboration functions can be a venue for concerned or interested users to ignite their discussions on topics raised in AI Watch reports or publications.
In a longer-term, the two initiatives can jointly do surveys on relevant and shared topics including AI skills, demands for upskilling or reskilling of European workforce, use and impact of AI in public services and more.
AI Watch and AI4EU can also jointly organise seminars/workshop/events that are of interested to the audience and stakeholders of the two initiatives. While AI4EU can provide a wide range of AI expertise from its diverse project partners, the Platform is a gathering place for AI experts at different levels and niches for in-depth analyses that are useful for both AI policymakers and AI enthusiasts in the EU.
With regards to public consultation, AI4EU’s growing AI experts, professional, and enthusiasts’ users can be a great source for AI Watch to conduct relevant policy issues and research for stronger and more relevant outcomes.
The two initiatives are also complementary in interests including AI social perspectives, key enablers of AI, the evolution of AI technology, the evolution of AI update in the economy, standardisation on AI and evolution of European market share in robotics.
AI4EU has a network of National Contact Points (NCPs) who are renowned academics and high-ranking government officials in all 27 countries. They can also support AI Watch with monitoring the EU Member States National Initiatives on AI.
The two initiatives are working to explore further opportunities to bring useful resources and reliable analyses to the users of both communities while developing more added values for them to utilise in their relevant AI decisions.
