Artificial Intelligence on the Verge of Regulation

7 March, 30 March and 26 April 2022 (5-6 pm CET)

With its draft Artificial Intelligence (“AI”) Act, the EU is pushing towards developing the world’s first legal framework for the development and use of trustworthy and reliable AI applications. The US administration is closely following the developments and has indicated an interest to adopt a similar regulatory scheme.

The draft AI Act intends to ensure safety and to protect fundamental rights of people and businesses while promoting the spread of AI and strengthening investment and innovation in the EU. It takes a risk based approach under which a few AI applications are banned and many AI use cases will be subject to strict requirements relating to transparency and data quality. The EU is also updating its liability laws with regard to AI applications.

These acts will affect users and developers of AI applications, sometimes in an un­expected way. Join our free webinar series on AI regulation and liability and get an idea of the impact of the upcoming legislation for your company.
