Credits: 3 ECTS
AI regulation is slowly emerging. The EU AI Act has entered the trilogy phase and is expected to be finalized in 2024. While the rest of the globe has been slow to follow in Europe’s footsteps, inklings of other responses exist. In addition to tailor-made regulatory frameworks, AI technologies are set in and must comply with a rich landscape of existing, non-AI-specific legal rules.
This seminar/workshop introduces non-lawyers to the legal regulation of AI technologies. It tries to enable the participants to develop a mental frame for understanding how the law could or should affect AI development. The goal is to give the participants a working knowledge of what law and regulation are and how they work in AI technology settings, introduce them to different regulatory modalities and instruments, address common sources of miscommunication between lawyers and non-lawyers, and discuss the existing AI regulation schemes.
