BSA’s Thomas Boué discusses the EU’s AI Liability Directive proposal, which would require extra checks for high risk uses of AI.
The bill will ensure that when an AI system does cause harm, there’s a common way to seek compensation across the EU, says Thomas Boué, head of European policy for tech lobby BSA | The Software Alliance, whose members include Microsoft and IBM.
