07/12/18 Promoting the development of artificial intelligence in Europe

On December 7th the Commission presented a coordinated plan prepared with Member States to foster the development and use of artificial intelligence in Europe. 

Among other actions, the EC is considering how promoting talent as talent in Europe is essential for the development and use of artificial intelligence, but EU countries face shortages of ICT professionals and lack AI-specialised higher education programmes.

That is why the Commission, together with European countries, will support advanced degrees in artificial intelligence through, for example, dedicated scholarships.

The Commission will also continue to support digital skills and lifelong learning for the whole of society, and especially for workers most affected by artificial intelligence.
