On April 21, the European Commission released the EU’s New Regulation on a European Approach to Artificial Intelligence (AI). Join us for a live discussion and Q&A with European Commission AI-Policy expert Lucilla Sioli, Director for Artificial Intelligence and Digital Industry, who will explain the Regulation and it’s intended uses, insights about the Brussels conversation on AI, and an insider’s perspective on what comes next.
In early 2020, Europe took a leadership role in the global conversation regarding how to reap the benefits of AI while minimizing negative consequences (trustworthy AI). This new Regulation intends to build on the Commission’s prior efforts by outlining a comprehensive regulatory framework for trustworthy AI, further refining ideas from the 2020 White Paper to include a definition of high-risk applications, regulatory obligations for providers of AI systems, the post-market surveillance of AI, a conformity assessment of high-risk AI applications, and the possible creation of a new AI Board.
This ambitious, long-awaited proposal is the first attempt to consider regulating specific uses of AI, and is expected to have a global impact on its development and deployment.
