Gabriele Mazzini, Team Leader - AI Act at the European Commission, discusses the risk-based approach they took when crafting specific rules for the Artificial Intelligence Act (versus simply opposing the technology as a whole).

Key Takeaways:

  • Recommendations put forward for regulating emerging technologies within the AI Act

  • What the process has been like for the development of the AI Act, including the key players

  • Where regulation in this space can be most helpful despite the complexities involved
