Nov 23, 2021 Rules for the Future: Regulating Artificial Intelligence in the EU

Whitepaper Overview

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is at the forefront of development in digital technology.

It has many applications ranging from:

  • Smart appliances,
  • Speakers and autonomous cars,
  • Robotics, healthcare and more.

AI could contribute up to “$15.7 trillion to the global economy in 2030, more than the current output of China and India combined.” 

Regulators and lawmakers around the world have highlighted that the introduction of new laws will soon shape how companies use AI. 

The EU is leading the way in AI regulation by proposing the first ever legal framework for AI. New rules on AI are also being put forward in the proposed EU Machinery Regulation which will complement the approach under the Draft AI Regulation.
