Fide Foundation launches the Oxford Congress: "AI, Big Data and the Digital Economy: Challenges and Opportunities”


An outstanding international congress, which will congregate in Oxford renowned jurists, scientists, economists and specialists from the financial markets, big companies, law firms, international investment fund managers, academics and public administration, with a global perspective and international experience, who will analyze the challenges and opportunities of Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Digital Economy.




The Congress will focus on the analysis of the challenges and needs of the European regulatory environment in the face of technological advances in Artificial Intelligence and the digital economy, the opportunities which they offer and the risks which they entail. The Congress will seek to establish its work programme in an inter-state context, taking into account the need for inter-state action where necessary, consistent with the EU's key concepts of subsidiarity and proportionality. The overall economic context is the starting point for this rigorous analysis.
