In April 2021 the EU Commission published a proposal for the first horizontal regulation on artificial intelligence: the EU artificial intelligence act. The AI act will apply to the AI used or placed on the EU market, irrespective of whether the providers are based within or outside the EU. An antitrust/GDPR-style sanctioning regime is proposed, with fines up to Euro 30M or 6% of global annual turnover. Obligations and requirements are addressed not only to providers of AI systems but also to stakeholders that use those systems or that are part of the value chain (manufacturers, importers, distributors). During the session, a high overview of the main blocks of the proposal will be provided as introduction for a live discussion.
