After a series of own-initiative reports and resolutions on Artificial Intelligence (AI) in several standing committees, the European Parliament set up a special committee on AI on 18 June 2020, mandating this committee to take a horizontal, long-term approach on the matter. The new Special Committee on Artificial Intelligence in a Digital Age (AIDA) will be composed of 33 members, and will have an initial duration of 12 months from the date of the constitutive meeting.

Its mandate is to analyse the future impact of artificial intelligence in the digital age on the EU economy, in particular on skills, employment, fintech, education, health, transport, tourism, agriculture, environment, defence, industry, energy and e-government.

The vote on establishing the special committee was carried 574 votes to 41, with 72 abstentions. Details on the committee's composition and competences are available below.
The Constitutive meeting will take place on 23 September 2020.
