A EUROPEAN CIVIC ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE STRATEGY CAN BE ABLE TO EMPOWER CITIZENS TOWARD COMPANIES AND INSTITUTIONS FOR THEIR RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES TO BE GRANTED
Artificial Intelligence exponential growth is mainly pushed by trade, security or military investments. What’s missing at both the International and National level is a Civic AI strategy, meant to empower citizens toward companies and Institutions.
This goal can be achieved by the EU.
Here’s some guidelines to pave the way to a European Civic Artificial Intelligence Strategy.
- make data from public institutions, agencies, authorities open by default. Indeed Open Data is a primary resource for any Civic AI system
- set-up a European Civic Artificial Intelligence Plan, enabling citizens to access information on legislation and procedures in a conversational mode, based on the actual interaction between Citizens and Institutions. Such a database would be integrated with additional information on National Legislation, so to help Citizens have an easy, useful and comprehensive access to the information needed on a given subject.
