Germany: Bundesnetzagentur launches consultation on AI

The Federal Network Agency ('Bundesnetzagentur') launched, on 7 April 2021, a public consultation on the use of and future possibilities for artificial intelligence ('AI') applications in different sectors.

In particular, the President of the Bundesnetzagentur, Jochen Homann, stated, ''Digitalised processes and AI can enable companies to reach their growth targets in a cost-effective way. There are, however, also sector-specific questions when AI is used in networked infrastructures. Through the consultation, the Bundesnetzagentur is seeking a dialogue with the market players about the current and future use of AI applications.''

Comments can be submitted via an online questionnaire by 19 May 2021.
