Malta’s Artificial Intelligence Task Force to organize public workshop

The Malta Artificial Intelligence Task Force will organize a public workshop, on the 21st of March, to present the findings of the first round of discussions it held so far.

The Task Force is currently drafting a National AI Strategy that, once approved, will be implemented by the newly established Malta Digital Innovation Authority, currently regulating DLT (Distributed Ledger Technology) products and services. This promises to position Malta among the top 10 nations with a strategy for Artificial Intelligence.

The workshop (which is open to the general public as well as experts and stakeholders) will provide a forum to discuss the milestones identified in the strategy as well as the direction it is heading. The consultation will also aim to identify opportunities as to how Government could deploy AI in order to optimize the services offered to the public.

Malta was the first jurisdiction in the world to approve a comprehensive DLT law, specifically aimed at regulating blockchain-based businesses and their service providers, as well as cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings.
