The pace of AI regulation is heating up. From the monumental AI Act passed by the EU, countries and states around the world adopting copycat laws, to commitments by the new UK government to better regulate artificial intelligence. Regulators and legislators are racing to ensure they are not left behind by the AI revolution, and can levy ever larger fines on companies who get things wrong.

As companies and industries race to ensure they are AI-ready, the cost of a compliance failure is ticking up. With potential fines that could dwarf GDPR, getting it wrong when rolling out AI technology could be devastating.

In this free 1 hour webinar, VinciWorks compliance experts will discuss critical upcoming AI regulations in the UK. From fines on compliance failure to possible new protections for workers, the UK has fallen behind on AI regulation recently but looks set to catch up quickly. We’ll also consider the implementation of the EU’s AI Act – the blockbuster regulation which has set a new global standard. And we’ll consider new regulations across the world from key US states like California and AI laws in Brazil. China and the Middle East.

Key points this webinar will cover:

  • What the UK plans for AI regulation
  • How would the UK enhance protections against AI discrimination
  • What does the EU’s AI Act work?
  • What are the sanctions on businesses under the EU AI Act?
  • What businesses need to know when investing in AI
  • Other AI laws and regulations around the world

AI is everywhere, and the higher and further education sectors are no exception. Artificial intelligence is increasingly being integrated into higher and further education for a variety of uses by both staff and students. The new technology has the potential to herald a new era of innovation, creativity, and efficiency, and effectively revolutionise higher education. For students, AI powered tools can enable more personalised learning experiences, enhanced accessibility and research capabilities, easier collaboration, and automate student administrative and logistical tasks such as scheduling, registration, and financial aid management. For staff and administration, AI solutions also offer numerous benefits, including streamlined and more efficient administrative processes, data-driven decision making, recruitment and admissions process, as well as creative academic applications, such as having students critically evaluate AI generated texts, freeing up valuable staff time and resources for more personalised student support and academic initiatives.

Yes, it’s more important than ever. Here’s how to get started

No one really knows how to deal with AI yet. But as the use of AI technologies works its way deeper into our business practices and as AI slowly enters the legislative arena, we’re looking at, AI Act, it’s critical to have a policy ready. It’s vital for your business practice, for your employees, for your customers and to be prepared for eventual ongoing compliance. 

Ensuring that as AI advances, its use is ethical, controlled and helpful is what is propelling laws, discussions, and frameworks. It will go beyond data privacy, intellectual property and consumer rights into national and international regulations, crossing borders but necessitating understanding and adherence and a culture of responsibility. That is why a company AI policy needs to be able to function as a dynamic document that is prepared to change as the legal and cultural environment around AI evolves.
