A EUROPEAN APPROACH TO DATA
The European Union on Wednesday outlined the body’s digital strategy and recommendations for regulating artificial intelligence and facial recognition.
“Today we are presenting our ambition to shape Europe’s digital future,” Ursula von der Leyen, the president of the body’s executive commission, said in a statement.
“It covers everything from cybersecurity to critical infrastructures, digital education to skills, democracy to media. I want that digital Europe reflects the best of Europe – open, fair, diverse, democratic, and confident.”
The digital strategy focuses on making Europe a leader in the data economy.
In a 35-page-long document, the European Commission discusses creating a “European Data Space,” a shared data market between member nations with improved transparency.
The Commission will propose a framework for data, which it says will emphasize sharing and personal data protection.
