Looking ahead to the EU AI Act
On 12 July 2024, the "Regulation laying down harmonised rules on artificial intelligence" (the so-called AI Act) was published in the Official Journal of the European Union. After a long and complex journey that began in 2021 with the European Commission’s proposal of a draft AI Act, the regulation will now enter into 20 days after its publication, i.e. on August 2, 2024. As the world's first comprehensive law to regulate artificial intelligence, the AI Act aims to establish uniform requirements for the development and use of artificial intelligence in the European Union. With this adoption of the world’s most significant legislation on Artificial Intelligence, the EU is solidifying its position as a pioneer among global legislators. This initiative aims to establish and reinforce the EU’s role as a premier hub for AI while ensuring that AI development remains focused on human-centered and trustworthy principles. The AI Act aims to ensure that the marketing and use of AI systems and their outputs in the EU are consistent with fundamental rights under EU law, such as privacy, democracy, the rule of law and environmental sustainability. Adopting a dual approach, it outright prohibits AI systems deemed to pose unacceptable risks while imposing regulatory obligations on other AI systems and their outputs. The new regulation, which also aims to strike a fair balance between innovation and the protection of individuals, not only makes Europe a world leader in the regulation of this new technology, but also endeavours to create a legal framework that users of AI technologies will be able to comply with in order to make the most of this significant development opportunity. In this article we provide a first overview of the key points contained in the text of the AI Act that companies should be aware of in order to prepare for the implementing regulation.
