Conference on Human-Centred Regulation of AI

Research into the laws and automation of rational thinking and acting has been going on for centuries and has accelerated over the last eight decades within the framework of artificial intelligence (AI). The technological advances of the last decade have opened the door to the mass production of AI products and prompted an existential question: how to create an ethical and human-centred AI regulation that also protects the Earth's biosphere and supports further development?

The conference discussed the EU AI Act, including its objectives, structure, interpretation, available information resources and educational elements, case studies, as well as the practical steps required for different stakeholders and AI developers.
