As the second edition of the international conference on Ethics and Artificial Intelligence approaches (June 24-25, 2022), we are pleased to attach a Background Document that provides an update on the main trends and evolutions in the field since the first edition, in September 2021. The analysis focuses on four macro themes: AI as a strategic geopolitical lever; data driven and digital enabled business models; the twin revolutions (ecological and digital); and AI regulation. This document is our way of welcoming you to the conference’s second edition. We hope it both captures the spirit of the meeting and offers meaningful insights for future study of the crucial issue of “ethics and AI”.
