About this Event

You probably know that the European Union started a discussion on regulating AI in February. What we know is that over the next 10 years EU wants to invest more than €200bn in the development of artificial intelligence technology. This includes building European Data Spaces and introducing regulations for AI-backed solutions in “high-risk” sectors like healthcare and security.

But what does it mean if we distinguish between “high” and “low” risk AI? What exact implications does it pose for AI-backed startups? And how to keep the balance between innovation, EU competitiveness on the international arena and citizens security?

To explain the big picture and help the Portuguese community understand and navigate this discussion, we invited Benedikt Blomeyer, Director for EU Policy at Allied for Startups. Straight from Brussels, where he actively engages in shaping the new policies in AI and for online platforms, he'll join our Beta Hour and share key facts and his perspective on new AI rules for Europe. Benedikt will be there to answer your questions and open the discussion.

More guests to be confirmed soon.
