While Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the most complex regulatory challenges of all time, this has not stopped the European Union from regulating it, proposing the world's first binding laws on AI and moving beyond ethics concerns and ethical framing alone.
This short City Law School Institute for the Study of European Law (ISEL), Jean Monnet Chair in EU law & Jean Monnet Chair in Law & Transatlantic Relations workshop considers key issues in the regulation of AI in the EU from an EU law perspective as a multidisciplinary and a cross-cutting contemporary challenge of the 21st century. AI increasingly is salient in a diverse and range of policies – yet to what extent it has transversal application remains to be seen in practice. The workshop considers contemporary conceptual challenges as well as thematic policy-specific issues.
It is in the form of two short panels with all presenting brief deep-dives into conceptual as well as policy fields from a range of inter and multidisciplinary experts on AI related fields. It considers: What are the innovations of the EU’s regulatory models in its AI Act? What are its legal tools? How cross-cutting are regulatory innovations and challenges?
