Requirement Modeling for AI Act Compliance for Data Sharing in Health Data

Thursday, 26th October 11:30-12:00 IST (GMT+1)

Online Event/ IVI Boardroom (238) Eolas Building

As part of Maynooth University Research week, Mansoor Ahmed Innovation Value Institute will present on the topic “Requirement Modelling for AI Act Compliance for Data Sharing in Health Data” on Thursday 26th Oct at 11:30 (GMT+1).

The European Union is on the verge of adopting a series of regulations that will affect how data is collected and shared in the EU. These include the Data Governance Act, the Digital Services Act, the Digital Markets Act, the Artificial Intelligence Act and the Data Act.

The evolving nature of international standards for trustworthy AI exacerbates these requirements and compliance mapping challenges. The need for the harmonization request for the AI Act to be satisfied by European Standards Development Organizations that are not current driving those standards and the proliferation of other proprietary, international, and national guidelines and standards for trustworthy AI.

This work presents an open approach to capturing requirements from different regulations and associated standards documents so that the sufficiency of the local management process and resulting artifact exchanges between value chain actors can be compared and compliance with different regulatory and policy requirements can be assessed and tracked.
