AI regulation and governance is a global challenge starting to generate different responses in the EU, US, and other jurisdictions. Despite this regulatory gap, the public sector is quickly adopting AI solutions for a wide range of activities and public services.
This webinar will provide an opportunity to take a hard look at the likely effectiveness of AI regulation by contract through procurement and its implications for the commercialization of public governance, focusing on key issues such as:
- The interaction between tender design, technical standards, and negotiations.
- The challenges of designing, monitoring, and enforcing contractual clauses capable of delivering effective ‘regulation by contract’ in the AI space.
- The tension between the commercial value of tailored contractual design and the regulatory value of default clauses and standard terms.
- The role of procurement disputes and litigation in shaping AI regulation by contract.
- The alternative regulatory option of establishing mandatory prior approval by an independent regulator of projects involving AI adoption by the public sector.
