The European Commission has published its proposal for a new AI regulation. It takes a risk-based approach with different rules for low-risk applications of AI, stricter rules for riskier systems, and a complete ban for specified types of AI applications. Regulatory measures include data governance, transparency, information to users, and human oversight. The proposal also includes measures for supporting AI innovation through regulatory sandboxes. The proposed regulation was met with great interest and criticism. It started an intense debate about its appropriateness, omissions, specificity, and practicability. With this lecture and the following discussion, we aim to improve the understanding of the proposal’s main objectives, methods, and instruments and contribute to the public debate of how AI should be regulated in the future.
