The Impact of Global Regulations on AI: An Introduction to the EU AI Act

Christoph Schrills

Lead Consultant

Global regulations for the development, deployment and use of artificial intelligence (AI) will have a significant and lasting impact on the way AI is used and applied. The EU AI Act is one of the most authoritative global regulations and will also be binding and highly relevant for companies in Switzerland, which are operating in the EU. The regulation aims to strengthen trust in AI and the decisions made by AI applications.

Here you will learn which aspects need to be considered, which AI risks exist and how they can be mitigated with the help of AI Risk Assessments, AI Governance and AI Operating Models (MLOps). This is an important step to avoid discriminatory and non-transparent decisions of AI applications and consequently high penalties and loss of trust among customers.
