Take your AI governance leadership to the next level

AI is dominating headlines, workplaces and public spaces, making AI governance of paramount importance to ensure that AI is deployed ethically and responsibly. This is especially true with the upcoming implementation of the EU AI Act, the world’s first comprehensive AI governance regulatory framework.

Consequently, we made the strategic decision to host our second AI Governance Global conference in Brussels this year, where you can enhance your understanding of AI governance challenges, solutions, emerging trends, best practices and upcoming legislation. As an AI governance thought leader, you will also be able to build your network of AI governance professionals.

Due to the magnitude of the EU AI Act, we will be offering a special EU AI Act Comprehensive within the overall conference for those who want to take a deeper, piece-by-piece dive into this groundbreaking legislation.

At AI Governance Global 2024, we are offering a special six-session EU AI Act Comprehensive, basically a conference within our conference, featuring AI experts from different disciplines and countries.

They will give a piece-by-piece breakdown of the most comprehensive regulatory framework on AI to date and provide the full picture of what EU AI Act compliance will entail once it goes into effect. You can attend all the sessions or just the ones you need to complete your understanding of this groundbreaking legislation.

These are some of the sessions you will not want to miss in Brussels

Brussels’ Effect 2.0
After the GDPR, the “Brussels effect” took place, with several jurisdictions following the EU’s steps and implementing data protection legislation. Now, with the EU AI Act, we may be headed toward a second wave of the same phenomenon. This session will discuss the effects of this legislation on civil society, the private sector and how the act will impact legislative efforts elsewhere.

Managing Regulatory Obligations Through an Integrated Governance Operation
Managing the AI life cycle can be a daunting prospect for any enterprise. This panel will provide a blueprint for managing the AI life cycle in a structured, methodical and responsible way with practical tips from professionals who manage these processes on a daily basis.

Implementing Generative AI Risk Frameworks in Practice: Lessons from the EU & US
Learn from multiple stakeholder insights about transparency and disclosure for synthetic content, including emerging best practices in detection and authentication. Receive early access to insights from the Open Loop US program and hear about its affect on the EU AI Act.

Wild Horses: Can We Tame Disinformation in 2024?
In this globally significant election year, the rapid uptake in use of Generative AI is raising key questions by governments, citizens, and media about how disinformation will impact democratic processes, let alone results.
