the European strategy for AI presented in April 20181
. To address the opportunities and challenges of
AI, the EU must act as one and define its own way, based on European values, to promote the
development and deployment of AI.
The Commission is committed to enabling scientific breakthrough, to preserving the EU’s
technological leadership and to ensuring that new technologies are at the service of all Europeans –
improving their lives while respecting their rights.

European approach on the human and ethical implications of AI as well as a reflection on the better
use of big data for innovation.

technology. The purpose of this White Paper is to set out policy options on how to achieve these
objectives. It does not address +the development and use of AI for military purposes.The Commission
