Workshop on Interleaving Legal and Technology Aspects – Regulation Blocks (BL-LEGAL)


The new regulatory framework targets data usage -- particularly in Europe --, and AI/ML data processing systems and challenges the developers and software producers from a new aspect. The workshop aims to highlight the brakes and traps within the newly proposed or recently adopted European regulations and directives such as AI/ML regulation, the Data Act, and other developments in the legal and regulatory environment related to IT. One of the focuses of the workshop is an outlook on the impact exerted by the GDPR and its consequences on the technologies of blockchain and IA/ML. The other focus is the technical solutions to mitigate the risks and comply with the laws, directives, and regulations at the EU and member levels. The workshop provides a forum for discussing the approaches of technologies, such as smart contract web services, and adequate architectures that should fulfill the requirement of regulations and IT constraints.
