La régulation de l'IA en Europe

The regulation of AI in Europe

International conference online and at the Artificial Intelligence Center of Sorbonne Université (SCAI)

  • On December 10th

  • 09:00 - 17:00
  • Online event

The publication by the European Commission on April 21, 2021 of a Proposal for a Regulation on Artificial Intelligence marks the transition from the era of ethics to the era of legal regulation of AI systems. The preparation of a binding legal instrument in the framework of the Council of Europe further confirms that AI is at the center of attention of European legislators.

This multidisciplinary study day aims to present and discuss these proposed regulations, their articulation with existing legal rules (liability, personal data) and their gaps. Finally, several AI use cases (facial recognition, health, finance, work, etc.) will be the subject of particular attention. 

The conference will be held in French.

Welcome to Sorbonne University's Faculty of Science & Engineering

A unique combination of courses and expertise

Our international study programmes are organised according to the major disciplinary areas of the faculty. They represent the graduate study programmes that are not strictly conducted in French or that could be suitable (in part) for non French-speaking students. They also reflect part of the diversity of the disciplines involved and the bi- and inter-disciplinary aspects of many of the courses we offer.


Research & Innovation

We rely on disciplinary skills and on interdisciplinary approaches to renew concepts, methods and research subjects and to focus on some of the crucial issues faced by our societies: transformations affecting the very construction of knowledge (data, AI), the treatment of complex objects (the environment, marine and ocean sciences, cultural heritage) or our contributions to addressing societal challenges (climate change, healthcare).
