Abstract

Artificial Intelligence has been a part of all European programmes from Esprit to H2020. We invented AI approaches and techniques that empower industry, health, transportation, energy, environment and other fields. The connection between AI, cinema and games changed entertainment industry. AI has capacity to create new professions and new activities.
The AI fever and 3rd wave impulsed by GAFA is an opportunity to consider what we have and what should be the contribution of “AI invented in Europe” to global economy.
AI produces several kinds of impacts; knowing them may help innovating really useful applications instead of replacing human.
This debate focuses on capacity of AI to address the current challenges and bring its contribution to sustainable and prosperous future.
Finally some perspectives will be found from discussion on a room for AI in Future research and innovation.
