On 19 February 2020 the EC published for consultation its white paper “On Artificial Intelligence – A European approach to excellence and trust”, giving us a clear view of the substantial changes the EC has in mind. 

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a strategic technology that offers many benefits for citizens and the economy. It will change our lives by improving healthcare (e.g. making diagnosis more precise, enabling better prevention of diseases), increasing the efficiency of farming, contributing to climate change mitigation and adaptation, improving the efficiency of production systems through predictive maintenance, increasing the security of Europeans, and in many other ways that we can only begin to imagine.
