Software Systems Compliance with the AI Act


Host: Prof. Paolo Tonella




USI East Campus, Room D0.02

Paolo Falcarin
Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, Italy
Abstract: The European Union’s Artificial Intelligence Act (AI Act) is the very first attempt in the world to regulate AI systems. In the first part of the talk, I will present the lessons learned from the First Grand Challenge 2023, a competition at University of St. Gallen involving interdisciplinary teams tasked with assessing the legal compliance of real-world AI-based systems with the AI Act. The competition provided first-hand experience and practical knowledge regarding the AI Act’s requirements, highlighing research challenges for the software engineering and AI communities. This work has been presented at RAIE (Responsible AI Engineering) workshop at ICSE 2024.

Biography: Paolo Falcarin is Associate Professor at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, where he is part of the Software and Systems Verification group. His research covers Software Security and Protection, Empirical Software Engineering, distributed systems.

In February 2019, the Software Institute started its SI Seminar Series. Every Thursday afternoon, a researcher of the Institute will publicly give a short talk on a software engineering argument of their choice. Examples include, but are not limited to novel interesting papers, seminal papers, personal research overview, discussion of preliminary research ideas, tutorials, and small experiments.
On our YouTube playlist you can watch some of the past seminars. On the SI website you can find more details on the next seminar, the upcoming seminars, and an archive of the past speakers.
