EU Artificial Intelligence Act

European parliament prepares tough measures

The European Parliament is on the verge of implementing strict new regulations regarding artificial intelligence, potentially enacting the most restrictive AI development regime in the world. Sources familiar with the process suggest that MEPs in Brussels are finalizing proposals for Europe’s Artificial Intelligence Act, which includes measures such as requiring chatbot developers to disclose the use of copyrighted material in training AI models. This declaration would allow content creators to demand payment for the use of their work. Additionally, MEPs propose assigning responsibility for AI program misuse to developers such as OpenAI, rather than smaller businesses using them.

One proposal that has generated controversy among MEPs is a complete ban on the use of facial recognition technology in public spaces. While EU member states are expected to oppose such a ban due to pressure from their local police forces, lawmakers are expected to push for strict regulations on the use of biometrics.
