The European Commission’s draft Artificial Intelligence Act is the first comprehensive attempt at global level to regulate specific uses of AI systems. The draft Regulation uses a risk-based approach to classify AI systems with different requirements and obligations, according to their intended purpose and level of risk.

Is this new framework based on the right principles and approach to foster innovative and trustworthy AI solutions? What impact can be expected on AI providers and users? Will the AI Act boost the uptake of AI and guarantee a human-centered approach?
