In order to gain a clearer picture of the opportunities and consequences of Artificial Intelligence for (Dutch) society, the Dutch government asked the WRR to produce an advisory report on this subject.

Overarching multidisciplinary study

Numerous studies have been and are being carried out on the impact of Artificial Intelligence. The government has expressed a need for an overarching, multidisciplinary study to supplement these existing studies. It has asked the WRR to produce a report which will feed into the national knowledge and policy development process and at the same time offer a suggested direction of travel for the European and international dicussions on this topic. The WRR is planning to embark on this research project at the end of 2018.
