Navigating the EU AI Act: Innovation, Regulation, and the Future of the Digital Society

Activiteit: Organising and contributing to an event Academic


The EU AI Act promises to be the first universal framework to comprehensively regulate the application of machine learning and artificial intelligence. While even some Big Tech companies have recently started to embrace regulation that goes beyond AI Ethics, there are concerns that government intervention at this early stage of development stifles European AI research and the industry.

This event brings together experts and stakeholders from the North of the Netherlands with the aim of stimulating an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary exchange on innovation, regulation and the future of the digital society. We will look at the AI law from the perspectives of business, civil society, government and academia.

After all, what should drive innovation in our society: technological opportunity or a framework of principles to protect fundamental rights?

This event is organised as a collaboration between the Security, Technology & e-Privacy Research Group of the Faculty of Law, the Department of Governance and Innovation at Campus Fryslân, the Jantina Tammes School of Digital Society, Technology and AI, the SSiGNAll: Surveillance Studies in Groningen Network for All, the AI Hub Noord Nederland, Samenwerking Noord and the Decentralized Student Association (DSLA).
