Technologies like artificial intelligence or blockchain will greatly affect the functioning of the economy, the state and society. The world's advanced countries are trying to exploit as much as possible the potential of these technologies. Europe has long lagged behind global leaders such as the US, China or Japan, as reflected, for example, in direct investments in development of technologies such as artificial intelligence. The European Commission wants to change this negative trend and has therefore proposed a series of measures so that artificial intelligence strengthens Europe's industrial and technological potential while maintaining the Union's global competitiveness.
In addition to increasing public and private investment in modern technologies, it is also necessary to address socio-economic issues and create an ethical and legal framework that will ensure that the technological expansion will have a positive impact on the functioning of society. Can the European Union step up its investment in developing innovative technologies more and cope with global leaders such as the US or China? How will application of technologies such as artificial intelligence affect labour market and education system? What are the objectives and particular activities of Slovakia in this area? Can we create a meaningful regulatory environment so that technologies have a positive impact on our economy and society?
Artificial Interlligence is no longer science fiction. It has already become a working tool. A tool that is already a common part of our life today and has ceased to energize astonishment. The panel will primarily address such practical demonstrations of the use of artificial intelligence.
