The European AI Act: big steps ahead

Europe is a front-runner in its attempts to regulate AI-systems. In 2021 the European Commission presented a proposal for the European AI Act. The rules follow a risk-based approach and establish obligations for providers and users depending on the level of risk the AI can generate. The proposal has been discussed intensively by many stakeholders and big steps are taken recently in the legislative process with the adoption of a general approach by the Council in December 2022 and adoption of a draft negotiating mandate by the Internal Market Committee and the Civil Liberties Committee of the European Parliament very recently on 11 May 2023. This mandate needs to be endorsed by the whole Parliament, with the vote expected during the 12-15 June session.

In this SAILS Lunch seminar Prof. dr. Iris Wuisman will discuss the key aspects of the proposal and the compromise texts of the Council and the adopted text by the responsible EP committees (LIBE & IMCO) in which many amendments to the Commission’s proposal are included.
