Launch event for the Spanish Regulatory Sandbox on Artificial Intelligence
Bringing the AI Regulation Forward’ is an online event to launch Spain’s pilot for a Regulatory Sandbox on Artificial Intelligence (AI).
On 27 June 2022, the Government of Spain and the European Commission are organising an event on “Bringing the AI Regulation Forward”. The event aims to launch Spain’s pilot for a Regulatory Sandbox on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and will be transmitted online via web streaming.
The day will be opened at the highest level by the European Commissioner for the Internal Market Thierry Breton and the First Vicepresident of the Government of Spain Nadia Calviño. The Spanish Secretary of State for Digitalisation and AI Carme Artigas and the Director General of DG Connect Roberto Viola will together present the Spanish AI Sandbox and the envisaged European framework.
Artificial Intelligence is a priority for Spain and for Europe. The regulatory sandbox piloted by Spain, aims to create the conditions for a smooth implementation of the future regulatory rules applying on the field. The sandbox will facilitate the testing of specific technical solutions and compliance procedures while at the same time supporting companies and especially SMEs to avoid uncertainty and unnecessary burdens.
The piloting process is expected to set up an operational framework for all interested organisations and create synergies with other national initiatives. Other EU Member States are encouraged to join or follow up with similar initiatives with the goal of creating a pan-European AI system of sandboxe
