Knowledge for policy

About AI Watch

In 2018, the European Commission published two communications on a European strategy for Artificial Intelligence (AI), in April and the Coordinated Action Plan in December. The Plan foresees the creation of AI Watch, the “Commission Knowledge Service to Monitor the Development, Uptake and Impact of Artificial Intelligence for Europe". 

AI Watch is an initiative of the European Commission (EC) jointly developed by the EC joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CONNECT).  

AI Watch is monitoring industrial, technological and research capacity, policy initiatives in the Member States, uptake and technical developments of Artificial Intelligence and its impact in the economy, society and public services. It provides a number of analyses necessary to monitor and facilitate the implementation of the European Strategy for AI.
