As a pre-requisite, AI should be a humancentric technology. It should not substitute human autonomy nor assume the loss of individual freedom
and should first serve the needs of the people and the common good.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already part of our lives, transforming our world and our societies. AI will play an increasing role in our everyday lives, improving our quality of life, offering new opportunities and opening new perspectives for individuals and businesses, across all sectors.
AI can make a huge contribution to reaching our common goal of improving the lives of our citizens and fostering prosperity within the EU. As a strategic engine of productivity and economic growth, it will increase global GDP in the years ahead.
In areas such as health, agriculture, energy, transport, climate and various industrial processes AI can contribute to the development of better strategies and innovations. Its development is also a condition to reach the sustainability goals of the Green Deal in many different sectors. Digital technologies can boost the impact of policies in delivering environmental protection.
