Artificial Intelligence (AI) will revolutionize and disrupt practically every industry. It will impact products and services but also the everyday lives of citizens worldwide, bringing about both socio-economic opportunities and challenges which need to be addressed early on. Governments and industries around the world are already engaged in a fierce AI arms-race in an early attempt to dominate the field.
