Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an unstoppable force that has the world at the precipice of a new era. The European Union is taking groundbreaking steps towards implementing a comprehensive regulatory framework for AI called the Artificial Intelligence Act (AIA). Wipro has produced a guide that offers an overview of the AIA provisions and principles. Download your copy . 

It is crucial for enterprise security operations to devise strategies that will ensure the security and effectiveness of AI systems. The AIA introduces key provisions that help define the boundaries of AI deployment based on four categories of risk systems: 

  • Unacceptable risk 
  • Limited risk 
  • Minimal risk, and 
  • High-risk 

Two examples of unacceptable risk systems are real-time biometric identification in public spaces and emotion recognition in law enforcement. High-risk AI systems encompass biometric and biometrics-based systems, essential public and private services, research and analysis systems for justice administration and democratic processes, and recommendation systems in social media platforms. These systems are considered high risk because they may pose a significant threat to the fundamental rights, health and safety of individuals.

To ensure transparency and accountability, the AIA mandates that AI systems inform users — both natural persons and deployers — about their operation, capabilities, and the rights affected by their use. It emphasizes the need for thorough assessments of AI systems to identify their long-term impacts on humans, society and democracy.
