AIA in-depth – Policy Roundtable #3: High Risk AI

The European Artificial Intelligence Act (AIA) will directly affect and change the lives and rights of many people, organisations and institutions. With over 3000 amendments in the European Parliament, the AIA has already set a record as one of the most comprehensive, relevant, and far reaching pieces of European technology legislation.

This year, the Weizenbaum Institute and ALLAI are hosting an AIA in-depth roundtable series where participants will be given a deeper look into the AIA, its implications and its consequences. On June 28, 2021, we organised the first roundtable in this series, diving into the scope, objective and definitions of the AIA, also reported by Tagesspiegel Background. The second AIA In Depth Roundtable on September 13 focused on prohibited AI applications (Art. 5). Tagesspiegel Background also reported on the second Roundtable on September 14.

We hereby cordially invite you to the third AIA Roundtable, which will focus on the question: What are high-risk AI applications and what are requirements for such systems? The Roundtable will be held on October 25 from 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm.

Catelijne Muller from ALLAI will introduce the topic with the definition of high-risk AI and the requirements for such systems. This will be followed by a look at the areas where high-risk AI is being applied. Jeremias Adams Prassl will talk about the area of “Employment, workers management and access to self-employment“. Marlies van Eck, on the other hand, will delve into the area of “public services and benefits”.

These in-depth views will allow participants to openly discuss the implications of the current prohibitions, raise questions and concerns, deepen their understanding of the AIA, and formulate or sharpen their positions.


We look forward to your participation! Please register here:
