Regulating AI: The impact of the EU AI ACT on robotics for agile production
The third Robotics4EU Agile Production workshop is about to take place on the 25th of September, in digital format, and you’re invited!
About the event
On June 14, 2023, the European Union officially adopted its inaugural set of regulations governing the use of Artificial Intelligence, commonly referred to as the AI Act. Given the widespread integration of AI in robotics solutions, it is evident that this new regulation will exert a substantial influence on the robotics community.
During this workshop, our objective is to delve into the potential ramifications of the legal framework outlined in the AI Act on the robotics sector.
Scheduled from 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM CET on 25th of September, this workshop will provide a platform for expert talks and open discussions among stakeholders from the robotics community. Over the course of two hours, we will delve into these crucial issues, aiming to collectively explore and address the challenges and opportunities that arise when integrating robotics solutions in agile production.
Joining us as keynote speakers are experts who will share their insights and experiences:
