Draft EU guidelines on ethical AI - The EU's High-Level Expert Group (HLEG) recently published their draft ethical guidelines for trustworthy AI.

We will keep you informed!

Revision of the EU's Public Sector Information Directive negotiated - This agreement, if adopted, will build on the EU's previous Directive. It will: have a larger scope; include more public sectors; facilitate access to and lower costs of data generated by public funding; and strengthen transparency requirements of public-private data agreements. This means new opportunities for both producers and users of data.
