07/03/2023, Brussels. Finnova foundation attended last Tuesday March 5th the “Forum on Legal Guarantees for the implementation of the European Artificial Intelligence regulation”, held at the European Parliament headquarters in Brussels (Belgium). Our colleagues from the European projects department Roger Bellido, Renata Luduvice and Diego Correro had the opportunity to learn first-hand about the latest developments in legislation related to the use and application of artificial intelligence proposed by the EU.
The event aimed to disseminate and inform about the process that has been followed in the development of the regulation for AI, its evaluation as a first common legal framework, as well as the guarantees that the application of the regulation implies for the rights of citizens. Among the speakers at the meeting were the director of the legal department of the European Commission, Alberto de Gregorio Merino, and the MEPs Adrián Vázquez Lazara and Juan Fernando López Aguilar. The forum was attended by stakeholders interested in AI legislation in the EU, from European affairs consultancies and representatives of the media sector, to employees of the Spanish Association of Registrars, among others.
Finnova, committed to AI ethics
This has been a presentation of great interest for the team of our foundation, since the legislation and regulation of AI is a topic that is on the agenda of the European agenda. In addition, this cutting-edge regulation aims to be a globally replicable model, being the first regulation at regional level on artificial intelligence. This regulation is focused on the technological and ethical development of artificial intelligence, establishing limits that do not violate fundamental rights and security.
From Finnova Foundation, as partners of LivAI project focused on the ethical approach to AI and the use of data, we strongly believe in this type of initiatives in order to regulate the revolution that the expansion of AI is bringing to our society. With a budget of 250,000 euros from the Erasmus+ program, the project aims to improve digital skills and the ethical use of AI in adults. It is led by Universitat Jaume I (Spain) in collaboration with Finnova Foundation (Belgium), Konnektable Technologies Ltd (Ireland), EFCoCert (Switzerland), Project Consult (Italy) and UBITECH (Greece).
