Catelijne Muller

Catelijne Muller is a member of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and rapporteur of the recent EESC opinion “Artificial Intelligence and Society”. The EESC identifies 12 societal impact domains of AI and gives a number of concrete recommendations to address these. According to Catelijne, the potential of AI for humanity can only be fully reaped if these challenges are addressed in a smart and timely manner. This requires the involvement of all relevant stakeholders: policy-makers, industry, social partners, consumers, NGOs, educational and care institutions, and experts and academics from various disciplines, including philosophy. AI raises ethical questions for example where policy makers, businesses and other stakeholders will need philosophical elucidation.

Catelijne is an EU policy advisor for several trade union confederations in The Netherlands.
