This certified short course will educate learners on the key compliance elements of the proposed AI Act. It will provide a basic introduction to AI, including understanding how to recognise AI, what tools are in scope of the Regulation and basic ethical principles relevant to the responsible use of AI in an organisation. It will provide learners with important information on identifying the appropriate risk level of an AI system as well as practical guidance on meeting the requirements of the legislation, especially in relation to high-risk systems. Finally, the course will identify where existing regulatory requirements can be built upon to support compliance requirements and where new frameworks need to be developed in reference to brand new requirements like Fundamental Rights Impact Assessments. At the end of this course, learners will have the baseline knowledge and building blocks to build readiness for the AI Act within their organisation, and support the responsible development and deployment of AI across Ireland and beyond.

Week Two: The EU AI Act - A risk-based approach to AI regulation. This session focuses on the core of the EU AI Act helping the attendee to understand the intended purpose and structure of the legislation.

It will also cover the types of AI that the Act prohibits.

This session will examine these requirements, including the different responsibilities of AI providers and users, the types of documentation that will need to be created and links to other pre-existing legislation and standards.


Week Four: EU AI Act accountability framework – New compliance documentation. In addition to familiar types of documentation, the AI act creates new requirements arounds AI risk assessment, the assessment of risks to fundamental rights and freedoms, algorithmic transparency and accountability, human oversight procedures, post-market monitoring measures and the requirement to register high-risk AI systems with the EU. This session will explore these new types of compliance obligations.


Week Five: EU AI Act accountability frameworkTechnical documentation. This session explores the technical documentation requirements required for accountability of AI systems under the Act, including advice on how non-technical professionals can understand and manage this. This included guidance on algorithmic auditing – the processes through which we can assess the accuracy, bias or reliability of an AI system.
