Date: 
14/10/2020 - 08:00 to 10:00
Venue: 
The University Fundation, Rue d'Egmont 11, 1000 Brussels

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a new exciting opportunity to better protect European consumers. As the European Commission calls for a human-centric AI, we see exciting developments which put the welfare of users and citizens at the heart of new AI tools.

During this CERRE Breakfast Conversation, a new promising application to screen the compliance of consumer contracts with EU law will be presented. Policy-makers and stakeholders will discuss how to reinforce EU consumer protection policy with AI.

This event will bring together key actors from the digital sector, regulatory authorities, policy-makers and academic experts for a morning of stimulating discussions.
