Imaging the AI Landscape after the AI Act Design Offices Macherei, Munich

The AI Act (AIA) is a landmark EU legislation to regulate Artificial Intelligence based on its capacity to cause harm. Like the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the AIA could become a global standard, determining to what extent AI can have an effect on our lives wherever we might be. The AI Act is already making waves internationally. In late September, Brazil’s Congress passed a bill that creates a legal framework for artificial intelligence. The AIA adopts a risk-based approach that bans certain technologies, proposes strict regulations for “high risk” ones, and imposes stringent transparency criteria for others. The first draft of the AIA has been highly criticized and several amendments have been proposed by several stakeholder groups, the main focus being on high-risk systems and obligations for developers of these systems. There seems like there is still a long way to go before the final text is ready for approval. A crucial question is to what extent can the requirements of this regulation be enforceable.
