DIGITAL SME’s Focus Group Artificial Intelligence is organising a workshop “The European AI Act and Digital SMEs?” on 9 March 2022, 10.00-11.30 CET.
On 21 April 2021, the European Commission published a legislative proposal for a European AI Act. The European DIGITAL SME Alliance generally welcomes a European approach to regulating Artificial Intelligence (AI). The EU’s vision for ethical AI and strengthening user choice and control may be able to set Europe apart in global competition and a common European approach is preferred over national regulation. Yet, in addition to becoming the frontrunner when it comes to ethical AI and regulation, Europe needs to support AI innovation, development, and market uptake by European companies. Against this background, the European DIGITAL SME Alliance believes that the proposal for a European Act on AI requires additional efforts to ensure the right balance between innovation and regulation.
As it is now time for the European Parliament to study, review, and vote on the proposal, we are holding a workshop to discuss DIGITAL SME’s position with relevant stakeholders. With this debate, we aim at placing European SMEs’ perspective on the agenda and give input to policymakers in the Parliament.
