The rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI) means that these technologies are now being used in our daily lives, at work and by governments. The advantages of AI are undeniable, as the new technology brings efficiency and reduced costs to businesses. However, concerns have been raised about security and how personal data is used.

In April, the European Commission introduced proposals to regulate the use of AI, aiming to mitigate the risks to citizens and businesses while maximizing opportunities for innovation and growth.

This will have impact on Hong Kong companies doing business in Europe. And because standards set by the European Union often influence policy decisions elsewhere in the world, any new E.U. regulations around AI will be worth paying attention to.

To help members understand these issues, the Chamber's Europe Committee will host a talk about the proposals and their possible implications for businesses in Europe and Hong Kong.

At this webinar, Benjamin Mueller, Senior Policy Analyst at the Center for Data Innovation, will share his insights on the impact of AI regulation on innovation development in the E.U. in the years to come.

Marcos Chow, Partner and Head of Technology at KPMG China/Hong Kong will give his perspective on the E.U.'s proposed regulations on AI, the key concerns facing businesses and governments, and the limitations they could bring to innovation.

Join the webinar to understand more about the use of AI in the E.U. and beyond.
