Centre For Artificial Intelligence (C4AI)

The European Parliament’s Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA) examines major scientific and technological trends and analyses their policy implications to inform debates about the opportunities, challenges and choices which lie ahead.

To intensify its activities in the field of artificial intelligence (AI), STOA has launched the Centre for AI (C4AI). C4AI was established by decision of the STOA Panel on 19 December 2019, and was announced at the high-level STOA workshop ‘The Future of Artificial Intelligence for Europe‘, which took place on 29 January 2020 at the European Parliament in Brussels.

Eva Kaili (S&D, EL), opening the debateA quote from the STOA Chair: “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nunc venenatis fringilla leo, eget sagittis lacus pretium a. Phasellus sagittis leo felis, in tincidunt purus placerat vel. Duis ac leo sem. Fusce tincidunt risus non magna imperdiet accumsan. Suspendisse quis augue id ex viverra gravida ut at orci. Integer vitae ligula eu lacus ultrices faucibus. Fusce dictum purus id vulputate fringilla. “


Within the context of STOA and based on decisions of the STOA Panel, C4AI produces studies, organises events and acts as a platform for dialogue and information exchange on AI-relevant topics within the Parliament and beyond. In particular, it provides expertise on the possibilities and limitations of AI and its implications from an ethical, legal and societal perspective. Through these activities, C4AI aims to contribute to the quality and coherence of discussion and policy-making as the EU seeks to coordinate its efforts and influence global AI standard-setting.

A new International Advisory Board is being established for the remainder of this parliamentary term (to June 2024). The Board will provide the STOA Panel with strategic advice about the future direction of its work on science and technology in general, with a specific emphasis on its work in the field of AI and the activities of C4AI.
