IViR Lecture: Effective AI regulation in the face of global interdependence

IViR is pleased to announce that
Daniel Mügge
will give a lecture entitled

Effective AI regulation in the face of global interdependence
on Friday 9 September 2022

Across the EU, stakeholders currently debate how artificial intelligence should be regulated, building on the 2021 Commission proposal for an AI Act. There is insufficient recognition, however, that both the shape and the effectiveness of a future EU AI regime will heavily depend on what other major regulatory powers will do—in particular the USA and China as the leading AI powers, but also international and transnational forums such as the OECD or the ISO/IEEE. Effective AI regulation needs to heed and accommodate the global political and technological force field in which the EU operates. During this IViR Lecture Daniel Mügge will propose the central dimensions of regulatory interdependence that the EU confronts in the field of AI, and alternative scenarios for heeding them in a future regulatory regime.

Prof. dr. Daniel Mügge is Professor of Political Arithmetic at the UvA political science department. His current research investigates political dynamics surrounding fledging European AI regulation. In particular, he focuses on the EU’s relationship with EU-external powers such as China and the USA (“EU AI diplomacy”) and as well as multilateral and transnational AI standard setters. To support his work, NWO recently awarded him a Vici grant.
