Ms Delvaux discussed her report with recommendations to the Commission, on Civil Law Rules for Robotics. She also discussed the EU’s recent progress on this issue, including the European Commission's call for increased financial and other investment in AI within Europe.



The advent of artificial intelligence and robotics creates new opportunities and risks, necessitating new forms of rule and regulation. Amongst the recommendations contained in Ms. Delvaux’s report in this regard are the establishment of an EU agency for robotics and AI, an advisory code of conduct for robotics engineers and a new reporting structure to take account of robotics and AI for the purposes of taxation. Ms. Delvaux will discuss the EU’s progress on these and other matters during her address.
