Discussant

  • Sam duPont, Deputy Director of the Digital Innovation and Democracy Initiative, The German Marshall Fund of the United States

On April 21, the European Commission proposed new regulations on artificial intelligence, constituting the first-ever attempt by a governing body to create a comprehensive legal framework on AI. With this move, the EU has bolstered its image as the preeminent global regulator in the digital realm. But being first isn’t everything. More importantly, would this regulation accomplish its goal of preserving fundamental rights while promoting innovation? Globally, does it stand a shot of becoming a model for other governments? Beyond questions of the regulation’s efficacy, it is sure to have geopolitical consequences as well. How will the European AI regulation impact transatlantic cooperation in the digital space? And how will it affect the EU’s relations with China? These questions and more will be addressed in this month’s edition of #TransatlanticTuesdays
