EU and Google make agreements about AIBack
Yesterday, the European Commission and Google met to make agreements about the use of AI (artificial intelligence). There is already a European draft law that should regulate AI, but its practical implementation may take a long time. Moreover, AI technology is developing at lightning speed.
The EU and Google are therefore already trying to make agreements about AI on a voluntary basis. Yesterday, European Commissioner Thierry Breton sat down with Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google, who previously expressed his concerns about AI.
There is a growing awareness that there must be rules for AI. In addition to the European Union, which wants to ban AI software with a high risk to the safety of European citizens and a stricter evaluation of new AI systems, the US also wants to work on new AI legislation. That much became clear in a hearing before the US Senate committee last week.
Earlier, in March, a number of tech celebrities, including Elon Musk and Steve Wozniak, issued a call to pause the rapid developments in AI. This open letter could have a huge impact on European legislation, among other things.
