Is the EU’s AI Policy Headed in the Right Direction?

by Eline Chivot

The European Commission is preparing a coordinated approach to developing and adopting artificial intelligence (AI). The Commission outlined initial policy options in its AI white paper, and after receiving public feedback will release a highly anticipated legislative proposal on AI in the first quarter of 2021. What feedback have stakeholders given, and which ideas do they believe the Commission will include in future legislation?
