The 2021 Coordinated Plan on Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the next step in creating EU global leadership in trustworthy AI. It builds on the strong collaboration between the Commission and Member States established during the 2018 Coordinated Plan.
Faced with the rapid technological development of AI and a global policy context where more and more countries are investing heavily in AI, the EU must act as one to harness the many opportunities and address challenges of AI in a future-proof manner. To promote the development of AI and address the potential high risks it poses to safety and fundamental rights equally, the Commission is presenting both a proposal for a regulatory framework on AI and a revised coordinated plan on AI.
