MEPs expected to call for more focus on artificial intelligence and robotics 

Developing EU rules and guidance on artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics will be the focus of a debate on Monday evening.

MEPs are expected to underline the great potential that AI and robotics have in manufacturing, health, energy and transport, while recalling that AI needs to be guided by a code of ethics.

By voting on a resolution on Tuesday drafted by the Industry Committee, MEPs want to give a clear political mandate to the European Commission to develop an action plan on artificial intelligence and robotics for the next legislature.
