The Artificial Intelligence Act: addressing the divergence between the public and private sectors
Play • 13 min

The European Parliament and Council are currently negotiating the Artificial Intelligence Act, which introduces common regulatory and legal framework for Artificial Intelligence (AI) in all domains except the military. However, the negotiations pose several challenges for legislators. How should the risk categories be established? Do they take into account unintended impacts of AI? What divergences between public and private sectors could emerge, and how can they be adressed? And how is the AI Act going to help protecting fundamental rights and values? We will answer these questions with Maria-Manuel Leitão-Marques, MEP from Portugal, who is the Vice-Chair of the Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection and a member of the OECD Parliamentary Group on AI; and Ilina Georgieva, research scientist working on AI, cyber regulation and cyber norms at the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), an independent research organisation.

This podcast is second in the 2022 series on Artificial intelligence, brought to you by the OECD’s Global Parliamentary Network and the European Parliament’s Panel for the Future of Science and Technology, also known as STOA.

Speakers: Maria-Manuel Leitão-Marques, Ilina Georgieva
