Legislators are trying to foster pursuing of trustworthy AI by design, and to prevent the rules from stifling innovation and hindering the creation of a flourishing AI ecosystem in Europe. The use of AI in the cultural & creative industries is helping companies improve their services and enhance the consumer experience - AI applications are increasingly helpful to improve editing and production processes, are the next step in video game development, save resources for special effects and enhance the curation and recommendation of an ever growing volume of diverse creative content. Can we ensure that a risk-based approach is followed in order to foster the uptake of these technologies in the sector? How can we ensure a balanced level of transparency to enhance knowledge & understanding for users? LOCATION:Sofitel Brussels Europe, Belgium TRANSP:OPAQUE END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
