Artificial intelligence isn’t only about the future. It is already making breakthrough advances in the present moment. While communities are ready to embrace AI’s potential, complex questions are tackled by society. The international community has already started its path towards defining a comprehensive regulatory framework for AI, dealing with essential aspects such as the definition of high-risk applications, regulatory obligations for providers and many others. During the SEEDIG 7 Series event #3, we will reflect on a global tipping point towards the regulation of artificial intelligence and its potential influence in the SEE region. We will discuss the need or lack of need for regulating AI, regulations seeking accountability for unfair or biased algorithms, and potential risks associated with the recent policy developments.

Join our Zoom Town Hall if you want to get the most recent insights on: 
  • Who among international and regional actors suggests what on AI regulation? 
  • Are those approaches complementary or conflicting? 
  • How should we regulate AI to both sustain innovation and protect human rights?
