How will the AI Act affect your business and research?

The AI Act is quickly becoming a reality, affecting every company and researcher that has something in common with AI. What to expect from the upcoming legislation? Who will be affected? How to prepare for the impact of the regulation? 

Our guests will be talking about how to use the AI Act to create trustworthy, responsible AI applications as well as how to proactively prepare companies and research teams for the regulation. There’s no better place for such a discussion than the Better AI Meetup!
