Do we already have the technology to comply with the proposed regulation? How to operationalize the privacy, fairness, and explainability requirements of the AI Act? To what extent does the AI act protect individual rights? How can redress be accomplished? What are the best methods to perform a risk assessment of AI applications? Do we need to define new metrics for validating the goodness of an AI system in terms of privacy, fairness, and explainability? What methods to assess the quality of the datasets need to be created to be compliant with the current proposal for the AI regulation? How is it possible to deliver a process that effectively certificates AI? How will the proposed AI Act impact non-EU tech companies operating in the EU? Will this make the EU the leader of AI market regulation?
