The article covers:

  • The scope of AI covered by the proposed regulation, and who it would apply to
  • The uses of AI that would be prohibited by the regulation
  • Requirements for high-risk AI systems, such as risk management, documentation and security
  • Transparency and disclosure requirements for AI systems
  • Penalties for violations
  • Key takeaways for U.S. companies developing AI systems

The proposed regulation remains subject to amendment and approval by the European Parliament and potentially the European Council, and may not end up becoming law. To find out more, read the full article on Perkins Coie’s website.
