ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ACT: A QUICK EXPLAINER

We all know Artificial Intelligence has the transformative power to help solving some of our society’s most enduring problems. As it increasingly becomes a commonplace in a wide range of fields, it was crucial to deliver on a regulatory model which mitigates risks and actively supports AI innovation.

European Commission’s Artificial Intelligence Act proposal is based on a four-tiered pyramid, shaped and divided following a risk-based approach which is proportional to the intended use of the AI system: the “higher the risk” to safety, health and fundamental rights, the stricter the rule.

So a few key questions arise, in our understanding:

  • how to define “high” or “low” risk?
  • how could your business comply with it, depending on your size and resources?
  • how could we develop AI algorithms without GDPR-proof data?
