The EU’s AI Act is the first-ever legal framework on Artificial Intelligence, which addresses the risks of AI and positions Europe to play a leading role globally. The act aims to provide AI developers and deployers with clear requirements and obligations regarding specific uses of AI. At the same time, the regulation seeks to reduce administrative and financial burdens for business, in particular small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The aim of the new rules is to foster trustworthy AI in Europe and beyond, by ensuring that AI systems respect fundamental rights, safety, and ethical principles and by addressing risks of very powerful and impactful AI models. But what are the implications of the act for European and other multinational companies abroad or those doing business with Europe or European business partners?

At this event, our guest speaker, Tseng Ken-Ying will provide a comprehensive overview of the recently approved EU AI Act and its legal framework, delving into the key provisions of the act and explaining its requirements regarding the development and application of AI technologies. In addition, Isabel Hou will share her insights from a Taiwan perspective on the EU AI Act and the AI governance framework for Taiwan.
