Technologies like artificial intelligence or blockchain will greatly affect the functioning of the economy, the state and society. The world's mundane countries are trying to exploit as much as possible of the potential of these technologies. Europe has long lagged behind global leaders such as the US, China or Japan, as it is reflected, for example, in direct investment into technology development such as the 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 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 technology such as the artificial intelligence affect work 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 technology has a positive impact on our economy and society?
