Digital future of Europe: digital single market and use of AI for European consumers (debate)

  Markéta Gregorová (Verts/ALE). – Mr President, the European Union is trailing on cutting-edge AI developments. We are behind in semiconductor production and investment and we trail in the application of useful AI products behind our friends in the US, Japan and Korea, as well as we are behind our systemic rival, China. Most of the global companies that develop and employ modern artificial intelligence are not European.

It is our common task and my generation’s duty to change that and to bring the European Union and its Member States to the forefront of the most important technological race of our time. To achieve this task, we must guard and protect our citizens’ fundamental rights and freedoms. My group has made amendments to this effect and I hope you can support them.
