On today’s podcast we interview a leading European Union lawmaker about the EU’s proposed Artificial Intelligence Act. Eva Maydell, a member of the European Parliament involved in the final talks on the AI Act, discusses how the EU's pioneering bill shouldn’t be made “so burdensome or so uninviting” that AI investors avoid or leave Europe. She describes how the bill could be a "global standard" and how the parliament's approach balances a stress on centralized enforcement and innovation. She also gives a hint on the prospects of finalizing negotiations on the law this year.
