Join us at the Chamber for an exciting event on the “Impact of the AI Act on Consumer Rights Protection” with MEP Mr Dragoş Tudorache and Cabinet Expert Mr Werner Stegg.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a family of technologies that can optimise existing processes or enable brand-new activities, and has been used in the areas of healthcare, commerce, energy, etc., driving human progress in countless other ways. Businesses use applications incorporating AI technologies across their operations to support better business decisions and deliver data-driven predictions to facilitate human decisions. It presents major new opportunities, but also serious risks.

As part of its digital agenda, the European Commission has therefore proposed harmonised rules regarding AI applications, emphasising that its approach is shaped by EU values and risk-based, ensuring both safety and fundamental rights protection. However, the appropriate balance between fundamental rights protection and public security is expected to remain a controversial issue.

Join us at the British Chamber of Commerce on the 7th of December, where MEP Mr Dragoş Tudorache (Renew, RO) and Mr Werner Stegg will discuss how the EUs new legislation on AI may impact consumer rights and their protection. Mr Werner Stegg is currently a cabinet expert on the cabinet of Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager, dealing with digital matters. MEP Dragoş Tudorache is the Chair of the AIDA (Artificial Intelligence in the Digital Age) special committee.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Chamber to this exciting event!
