The European Union, as part of its digital strategy, is taking steps to regulate artificial intelligence (AI) to promote the development and use of this innovative technology.
In April 2021, the European Commission proposed the first regulatory framework for AI in the EU. The aim is to turn the EU into a global hub for trustworthy AI.
The proposed regulations would classify AI systems according to the risk they pose to users, with different levels of regulation for different risk levels.
On June 14, 2023, MEPs adopted Parliament’s negotiating position on the AI Act. The aim is to reach an agreement by the end of this year.
