In-Conversation: Metaverse is already transforming the world - where are
we now, and what’s next?
is poised to become the next big milestone in the evolution of the internet
that will change how private and public-sector businesses work. Undoubtedly, AI
will play a huge role in the metaverse, especially as we communicate with
others. Nevertheless, there is not yet
a clear view of how the metaverse will evolve and materialize in practice. Many
questions about this emerging technological phenomenon remain unanswered.
Come listen to different enterprise examples of how Portuguese AI
startups are effectively being deployed within business to gain advantage.
Building the right culture for AI in Europe
On the second day of this series of webinars,
we will have a look into AI regulation. We will focus on the
recent international standardisation developments in ISO, IEEE and CEN as well
as on the European Commission’s new proposal for an EU regulatory
framework on artificial intelligence (AI). The AI act is the first-ever attempt
to enact a horizontal regulation of AI. The proposed legal framework focuses on
the specific utilization of AI systems and associated risks. The European
Commission proposes establishing a technology-neutral definition of AI systems
in EU law and laying down a classification for AI systems with different
requirements and obligations tailored to a risk-based approach.
