The EU AI Act is poised to become one of the most comprehensive and stringent AI regulations globally. With high standards for quality, risk management, monitoring, human oversight, and transparency, the EU AI Act aims to ensure that AI systems deployed in the European Union align with ethical standards and societal values. Non-compliance can lead to severe penalties, including fines up to €35 million or 7% of a company’s global turnover, whichever is higher. 

Recognizing this imperative, Dataiku has introduced its EU AI Act Readiness Program — a comprehensive solution designed to help global organizations navigate the complexities of the new EU AI Act, drive Responsible AI innovation, and effectively govern AI at scale.

What Dataiku Brings to the Table for AI Governance

The  EU AI Act Readiness Program offers a holistic approach to compliance readiness. Powered by Dataiku and its native governance capabilities, this program includes a comprehensive solution to triage AI use cases by risk level and step-by-step workflows that align with the Act's rigorous requirements.

Accelerating  AI Compliance Readiness

Manually processing regulatory policies is time-consuming and resource-intensive, causing compliance delays and complexity. Dataiku’s EU AI Act solution enhances preparedness for the EU AI Act by providing a comprehensive view of regulatory demands and efficiently implementing necessary controls to support compliance.

Fostering Accountability & Ensuring Audit Readiness

Managing stakeholder approvals for AI projects across departments, use cases, and risk profiles is complex but necessary. Dataiku allows risk and delivery managers to customize approval workflows to collect sign-offs from key stakeholders before deployment, fostering accountability and ensuring audit readiness.

Governing Generative AI

The EU AI Act requires effective governance of AI systems featuring Generative AI. Dataiku’s LLM Mesh enables organizations to efficiently build enterprise-grade Generative AI applications while addressing concerns related to cost management, compliance, and technological dependencies. Crucial to compliance activities,  The Dataiku LLM Mesh helps detect and mitigate issues such as bias, toxicity, and PII infringements, ensuring alignment with governance objectives. With Dataiku Govern, organizations can then get a comprehensive overview of their GenAI portfolio across development stages, business focus, risk factors and more.

Addressing Strategic Questions

While we await specific guidance on how the Act’s requirements will be met, new strategic questions around change management, allocation of responsibilities, and key activities will become increasingly important considerations. 

  • How can we ensure that our current and future AI projects are fully compliant with the EU AI Act requirements?
  • Can we quickly roll out specific measures to effectively manage and mitigate risks associated with different AI systems?
  • How can we centralize our decision-making processes and maintain a transparent, auditable record of all AI-related actions and decisions?

Dataiku's program addresses these and other critical questions that will be relevant to ensuring compliance with the EU AI Act, including managing and mitigating risks associated with AI systems, centralizing decision making processes, and maintaining transparent, auditable records of AI-related actions and decisions.

A key feature of Dataiku’s program is the personalized expert guidance provided to support organizations throughout their compliance enforcement journey.
