Updated survey: How to regulate Artificial Intelligence in Europe?

I have updated the introduction and some questions of my questionnaire at EUSurvey preparing for a larger academic public affairs paper on regulating #AI and #robots in #Europe and #Germany.

I would like to learn more about how you are perceiving this topic. Do we share common definitions? Whom do you see as the most important actors? Which issues there are on the agenda already, and which alternatives are being prepared?

I would highly appreciate reading your responses at
https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/Weidemann-EU-AI-2019.

Of course, you may also feel free to contact me directly at j.weidemann@ieu-monitoring.com.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
Kindest regards

Joachim O. Weidemann
