Spain to create supervisory agency for AI

Spain is reportedly planning to establish a supervisory agency for artificial intelligence (AI), for which the government has approved a specific budget line. The intention is to create the agency in 2022 and have it fully operational in 2023. The new body – the first of its kind in the EU, if established – would develop, supervise, and monitor projects that fall within the scope of Spain’s National AI Strategy. It would also follow AI-related projects promoted by the EU, including in the regulatory field.
