- The system of rules for Artificial Intelligence in European Union law based on the level of risk, where the qualification of the type should not be done in the abstract but depends on the concrete use made of this technology;
- The governance system for compliance with these rules in a global and technological company like IBM, emphasizing the centrality of humans and advocacy activities, and knowledge dissemination through the provision of training content;
- The so-called European Values and the impact assessment concerning fundamental rights. The central role assigned by European and national institutions in safeguarding these rights;
- The application of AI principles in contracts in a technological company like Google: the need to comply with numerous sources and attention to aspects related to intellectual property and provider responsibility;
- The role played by the Coordination Committee for updating national strategies on the use of artificial intelligence in promoting the development of this technology in Italy;
- The coexistence of the AI Act with various other sources, including the GDPR.
