Flavia Rebello*, a Partner at Trench Rossi Watanabe who focuses on Intellectual Property, Technology and Data Protection, shares a recent commission by the senate on a new bill that is further being analyzed in congress. The proposed law considers a risk-based approach inspired by the EU AI Act and looks at high, medium and low risk obligations and liabilities.
The law covers several agents including: accountability, transparency, obligation to carry out algorithm assessments, continuous evaluation of the outcomes of the solution, non-discrimination and the obligation to process data in accordance to the Brazilian Data Protection law. The new bill of law also creates a new supervisory authority and sets forth several penalties.
