The upcoming EU AI Act Summit 2024

January 26, 2024

AI Act

The EU AI Act Summit 2024, hosted at America Square Conference Centre, London, focuses on the groundbreaking EU AI Act, the first comprehensive set of AI regulations internationally. 

The Act takes a prescriptive, rules-based approach to AI regulation and is set to influence the direction of the industry. 

The EU AI Act Summit, taking place on February 6th, 2024, aims to provide practical guidance for preparing to implement this legislation. It offers an excellent opportunity for stakeholders in AI technology to understand how the Act will impact their operations and strategies.

Engaging with the act’s many rules and definitions is essential for both public and private stakeholders. It will bring new compliance responsibilities for companies operating in or serving the EU. 

With the Act also comes opportunities, such as funding initiatives and potential access to EU supercomputers and research facilities. 

The forthcoming AI Act will shape the AI industry

The EU AI Act was agreed upon in December 2023 and marks a huge milestone in the journey of AI regulation. It sets a comprehensive legal framework for the technology’s use and development. 

The Act categorizes AI systems into different risk levels, requiring varying degrees of regulatory attention. It was modified late last year to accommodate the acceleration of generative AI

However, this groundbreaking legislation has sparked debates within the industry, with some questioning its impact on innovation and competitiveness. The rules-based approach and its potential effects on businesses have also been a source of contention. 

Events like the EU AI Act Summit provide a vital platform for stakeholders to engage, share perspectives, and shape the future of AI regulation. 

They offer an opportunity to unravel the Act and its impacts so businesses can navigate it productively.
