  • Provide recommendations for future IoT-related investments;
  • Identify priority topics and potential actions to be taken to ensure Europe’s leadership in IoT;
  • Provide insightful and comprehensive view of IoT evolution;
  • Discuss the challenges from an economic and research perspective; and
  • Contribute to boosting the development of the European IoT community and ecosystem.

2. White Paper on Artificial Intelligence – take part in a process which will guide the regulatory framework for AI and IoT for decades.

In February the Commission published a White Paper entitled “Artificial Intelligence: A European approach to excellence and trust”. The White Paper is accompanied by a “Report on safety and liability implications of AI, the Internet of Things and Robotics”.
