Presented by

About this talk

The EU Artificial Intelligence Act is a pioneering law designed to regulate AI systems across the European Union. It significantly impacts sectors like technical documentation by prioritizing transparency, safety, and user rights. In this Coffee and Content episode, we'll talk with Sean Power, a technical writer at Technically Write IT who is deeply involved in ethics, information, and technology. Power, an expert reviewer for the EU AI Act draft, has significantly influenced responsible AI regulation, focusing on transparency and documentation. He also consults on ethical AI frameworks and shares his insights on ethics and AI widely, impacting responsible AI development and implementation. We'll explore how the EU's regulation efforts affect technical communication teams, especially requiring more comprehensive documentation to meet safety, transparency, and accountability standards. For technical documentation professionals, this means expanding the scope of documentation to include AI functionalities, decision-making processes, data practices, and privacy and bias mitigation measures. Tune in for this engaging discussion and bring your questions about the regulations and their impact on our field. Can’t make it?
