A European approach to the regulation of artificial intelligence

3

The European Commission is about to release an important policy package, which will include a proposal for a “Regulation on a European Approach for Artificial intelligence”. This will be the first attempt to define a comprehensive regulatory framework for AI, dealing with essential aspects such as the definition of high-risk applications, regulatory obligations for providers of AI systems, the post-market surveillance of AI, the conformity assessment of high-risk AI applications and the possible creation of a new AI Board. This will be a very ambitious proposal, which has been expected for several months also outside the EU, where several countries are considering regulating specific uses of AI. CEPS has therefore decided to invite the Director for AI and Digital Industry at the European Commission DG CONNECT, Lucilla Sioli, for an informal debate followed by a round of first impressions on the content of the proposal.
