Germany, France, And Italy Agree On The Regulation Of AI Going Forward
Germany, France, and Italy have struck a consensus on future artificial intelligence regulations. This development is anticipated to quicken talks at the European level, according to a joint document reported by Reuters,.
All three governments support legally-binding voluntary agreements for big and small AI vendors in the EU.
Currently, discussions are taking place among the European Commission, the European Parliament, and the EU Council over the bloc's appropriate stance in this emerging area.
In order to prevent discriminatory impacts and safety dangers from AI applications, the Parliament presented the "AI Act" in June. However, this new legislation will not impede the inventive potential of AI in Europe.
During the debate, the European Parliament suggested that the big AI providers—most of whom are based in the United States—should be the only parties initially bound by the code of conduct.
The three EU countries have, however, issued a warning on this seeming competitive advantage for smaller European providers. They stated that this might result in fewer people having faith in these smaller providers' security and, consequently, fewer clients.
They went on to say that everyone should be bound by the behaviour and transparency requirements.
The article states that no punishments should be applied at first.
On the other hand, a system of punishments might be implemented if violations of the code of conduct are found after a predetermined amount of time. The report stated that in the future, a European body will oversee adherence to the guidelines.
Laws and government oversight, according to Germany's Economy Ministry, which oversees the subject with the Ministry of Digital Affairs, should govern AI's application rather than its use.
The state shouldn't impose separate regulations on the development of AI models that aren't yet in use or on the market.
Representatives from politics, industry, and research will be present at the digital summit being hosted by the German government in Jena, in the state of Thuringia, on Monday and Tuesday.
The agenda item for the meeting between the Italian and German governments in Berlin on Wednesday is AI-related issues.
