The EU Commission's draft for an AI Act, published on 21 April 2021, represents the first regulation of artificial intelligence (AI) in Europe. It aims to create an innovative environment for trustworthy AI in Europe. Both the Council (in its General Approach of December 2022) and the European Parliament (in the amendments of June 2023) have proposed comprehensive changes to the AI Act. These proposed amendments are now to be discussed in the upcoming trilogue negotiations. From the point of view of ZVEI, the primary goal must be to continue to make the use of AI in industry practicable.
