Strategy paper on artificial intelligence in science published

The European Commission's Directorate-General for Research and Innovation has published a strategy paper on artificial intelligence (AI) in science. The paper deals with challenges such as scientific integrity, preventing technology misuse and harnessing the power of data.
The goals of the strategy are to exploit the enormous potential of AI and address the concerns of citizens. To this end, the introduction of AI should be accelerated by improving access to data and computing power. In addition, the influence of AI on the research process should be monitored and controlled.
