European AI Act – How will this regulation affect SMEs?

Add to Calendar

DIGITAL SME’s Focus Group on Artificial Intelligence is organising the European AI Act workshop on 19 May 2021, 9.30-11.00 CEST. The workshop is an invitation-only event for DIGITAL SME members and selected stakeholders from the European institutions and other organisations.

The European Commission has published last month its long-awaited proposal for an Artificial Intelligence Act, which will be discussed in the Parliament and Council before becoming law. To mitigate public concerns about the use of unethical AI applications, the EC proposes to ban a number of AI applications which manipulate human behaviour or conduct social scoring.

During this hands-on workshop, we will explain and discuss the rationale and scope of the proposed regulation and its potential consequences in particular on SMEs.


9.30 – 9.40 Welcome by DIGITAL SME
9.40 – 10.00 Presentation by Martin Ulbrich, Policy Officer, European Commission
10.00 – 10.55 Q&A with SME Focus Group on AI and other participants
10.55 – 11.00 Closing & next steps
