EU takes significant step towards implementing ‘groundbreaking’ AI regulations • FRANCE 24 English

**EU lawmakers move closer to passing groundbreaking AI regulations | France 24**

EU lawmakers took a significant step towards passing pioneering legislation that will regulate artificial intelligence systems such as ChatGPT. The proposed rules, based on a draft law presented by the European Union in 2021, gained even more urgency following the rapid advancements and potential risks demonstrated by ChatGPT in the previous year[^1^].

The European Union’s Artificial Intelligence Act aims to foster innovation while also mitigating the potential dangers associated with AI. The Act covers AI products and services and classifies AI system risk levels from minimal to unacceptable. Violations can lead to fines of up to 30 million Euros or six percent of a company’s annual global revenue, affecting major tech giants like Google and Microsoft[^1^][^2^].

To prevent abuse, the Act prohibits the use of biometric surveillance, emotion recognition, and predictive policing for identifying potential criminal activity[^2^]. It is worth noting that the EU legislation on AI may take some time to fully take effect, prompting Europe and the US to develop a voluntary code of conduct. Additionally, the UN is proposing its own code to address the potential consequences of unregulated AI systems, including threats to democracy, human rights, and information integrity[^2^].

In this rapidly evolving landscape, the UK is striving for AI leadership and will host a world Summit on AI safety to address concerns regarding the adequacy of rules and regulations[^2^].

EU lawmakers pushed the bloc Wednesday closer to passing one of the world’s first laws regulating artificial intelligence systems like ChatGPT, by backing a key text that forms the basis of a future law. While the European Union first proposed such a law in 2021, the draft rules took on greater urgency when ChatGPT exploded onto the scene last year, showing off AI’s dizzying advances and possible risks.
