The EU AI Act: a summary of its significance and scope


This explainer will be particularly useful for UK and global policymakers, as the Act is likely to become, or at least aspires to be, a global standard – as the GDPR has become for personal data protection – and will of course be one model for any future UK post-EU bespoke legislation. This explainer is supplemented by two papers: A policy briefing which provides specific recommendations for EU policymakers for changes to be implemented into the final version of the AI Act. An expert opinion commissioned from Professor Lilian Edwards, a leading academic in the field of internet law, which addresses substantial questions about AI regulation in Europe, looking towards a global standard.
