reusch­law Legal Con­sul­tants the only law firm in the recent­ly laun­ched GAIA‑X 4 AI project

reusch­law Legal Con­sul­tants is the only law firm taking part in the recent­ly laun­ched GAIA‑X 4 AI pro­ject, as one of 16 indus­try and rese­arch part­ners. The pro­ject is part of the GAIA‑X mobi­li­ty domain working group and is under the sci­en­ti­fic direc­tion of the Ger­man Aero­space Cen­ter. It will run through mid-2024, has a bud­get of EUR 18 mil­li­on and will be sub­si­di­zed by Ger­many’s Fede­ral Minis­try for Eco­no­mic Affairs and Ener­gy. Four addi­tio­nal sub­pro­jects are plan­ned this year in this area.

GAIA‑X 4 AI is about opti­mi­zing the mas­si­ve amounts of data which is gene­ra­ted from the plan­ning, con­s­truc­tion and ope­ra­ti­on of vehic­les, as well as the asso­cia­ted appli­ca­ti­ons, using arti­fi­ci­al intel­li­gence (AI). It will focus not only on ana­ly­sis, but also on crea­ting new pos­si­bi­li­ties in the field of auto­ma­ti­on, as well as in pro­duc­tion. The pro­ject will also inves­ti­ga­te the ques­ti­on as to how data from pro­duc­tion and data from day-to-day ope­ra­ti­on can be effec­tively com­bi­ned. The inte­gra­ted data rooms which will be neces­sa­ry for this pur­po­se have their place within GAIA‑X as the foun­da­ti­on for a new digi­tal ecosystem.

Phil­ipp Reusch com­men­ted as fol­lows: “In the cour­se of our con­sul­ting acti­vi­ties, we have long been enga­ged in deve­lo­ping legal solu­ti­ons for ques­ti­ons rela­ting to the growth in data infra­struc­tu­re. We are proud to be part of this vital Euro­pean pro­ject, which is lar­ge­ly about defi­ning qua­li­ty and cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on stan­dards which offer the grea­test pos­si­ble secu­ri­ty in con­nec­tion with the pro­ces­sing and use of data. The­r­e­fo­re, we are very much loo­king for­ward to deve­lo­ping refe­rence archi­tec­tures as part of GAIA‑X 4 AI to demons­tra­te what such a legal frame­work could look like, whe­re we can rely on exis­ting laws and whe­re the­re may be gaps which would have to be fil­led with con­trac­tu­al spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons. Ulti­m­ate­ly, this pro­ject is about set­ting the legal guar­drails for data pro­tec­tion and, at the same time, secu­ring the abili­ty to inno­va­te and remain com­pe­ti­ti­ve all over the world.”
