On the 28th of May 2024, 07:00 UTC there was a special briefing from OpenForum Europe (OFE) on the EU AI Act. It is part of a series provided by OFE on European policy matters that impact open source, business processes and risk management.

More Details

“The AI Act is the first-ever legal framework on AI, which addresses the risks of AI and positions Europe to play a leading role globally. The AI 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).”

Our Speaker is Ciarán O’Riordan, Senior Policy Advisor at OpenForum Europe. His background is as a free software / open source software policy and communications expert.

OFE is a not-for-profit, Brussels-based independent think tank which explains the merits of openness in computing to policy makers and communities across Europe. Originally launched in 2002 to accelerate and broaden the use of Open Source Software (OSS) among businesses, consumers and governments, OFE’s focus has since evolved to also cover issues related to Open standards, Cybersecurity, Digital Government, Public Procurement, Intellectual Property, Cloud Computing and Internet Policy.
