The European Social Insurance Platform (ESIP) together with the Belgian Federal Public Service of Social Security (FPS Social Security), will hold a webinar on "Artificial Intelligence and Social Protection in the EU: Navigating Challenges and Seizing Opportunities". The webinar will take place on Wednesday 5th of June from 14.00 to 15.45 CET, under the auspices of the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. 

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has transitioned from niche technology to a mainstream tool across various sectors, heralding significant changes in how services are designed, delivered and managed. The integration of AI in the field of social protection may result in enhanced efficiency and timeliness, improved service provision to individuals, and better resource management. However, despite its widespread adoption, there remains a nebulous understanding of the specific implications of the European AI Act on social security systems. This ambiguity requires a structured dialogue to acquire a clearer understanding of the AI Act's impact and to examine strategic pathways for innovation among organisations providing social protection across the EU.

This webinar aims to provide clarity and strategic insights into the integration of AI within social protection systems. It seeks to address the pressing challenges posed by regulatory frameworks, explore opportunities for innovation and cooperation, and highlight potential difficulties in the implementation of effective AI systems to ensure that AI contributes positively to social welfare current objectives and future needs.

An opening speech from the European Commission will shed light on the implications of the recently adopted EU AI Act. A following panel of ESIP members will discuss how they intend to use AI in their organisations as well as their own experiences with this technology. The last panel will address how the European Union can encourage AI innovation in the field of social protection.

The whole webinar will be moderated by Manuel Paolillo (Director General, Belgian FPS Social Security).
