Abstract

Challenges for AI and advanced technology manufacturers in Europe

 

The EU-wide AI Act (AIA) will not only have a significant impact on the AI manufacturing industries in Europe, but also globally. What are the repercussions for US companies? 

 

Our experts from Taylor Wessing, Koenig & Bauer, and the Bavarian U.S. Offices will dive into the latest manufacturing trends in Europe and Germany. Our goal is to spark a discussion on how the digitization of traditional manufacturers affects modern customer requests, cybersecurity risks in Industry 4.0, and the non-compliance risks in the context of equipment and customer performance analysis of large data sets.
