On 19 November were honoured to welcome Margrethe Vestager for an off-the-record discussion on AI policy.

Margrethe Vestager was given the task to prepare an AI strategy in her first 100 days as executive vice president. Her mission letter states "In the first 100 days of our mandate, you will coordinate the work on a European approach on artificial intelligence, including its human and ethical implications. This should also look at how we can use and share non-personalised big data to develop new technologies and business models that create wealth for our societies and our businesses."

The purpose of the event was for Ms Vestager to hear from a variety of stakeholders from academia, business, journalism and civil society.
