Europe Mulls New Tougher Rules for Artificial Intelligence

The European Union is considering new legally binding requirements for developers of artificial intelligence in an effort to ensure modern technology is developed and used in an ethical way.

The EU’s executive arm is set to propose the new rules apply to “high-risk sectors,” such as healthcare and transport, and suggest the bloc updates safety and liability laws, according to a draft of a so-called “white paper” on artificial intelligence obtained by Bloomberg. The European Commission is due to unveil the paper in mid-February and the final version is likely to change.

The paper is part of the EU’s broader effort to catch up to the U.S. and China on advancements in AI, but in a way that promotes European values such as user privacy. While some critics have long argued that stringent data protection laws like the EU’s could hinder innovation around AI, EU officials say harmonizing rules across the region will boost development.

Section Monitor of the AIWS Innovation Network (AIWS-IN) at https://aiws.world/monitoring-and-judging/monitoring/ will serve as a platform to bring authoritative knowledge and raise awareness about violations of ethical values and standards by governments and large organizations. The platform will monitor and alert against the misuse of Artificial Intelligence (AI), personal data, and neglect of cyber security. The objectives of the campaign are to stimulate and galvanize civil society towards the need to create new norms and regulations, and therein influence public and private AI and cyber policy.
