AI rules

EU agrees deal on AI regulation

European Union officials have reached a provisional deal on the world’s first comprehensive laws to regulate the use of artificial intelligence (AI).

The EU agreed guidelines around AI in systems like ChatGPT and facial recognition.

The European Parliament will vote on the AI Act proposals early next year, but any legislation will not take effect until 2025 at the earliest. The U.S., UK and China are all rushing to publish their own guidelines.


The proposals include safeguards on the use of AI within the EU as well as limitations on its adoption into law.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said the AI Act would help the development of technology that does not threaten people’s safety and rights. Consumers would have the right to launch complaints and fines could be imposed for violations.

Unique framework

In a social media post, she said it was a ‘unique legal framework for the development of AI you can trust’.

The European Parliament defines AI as software that can ‘for a given set of human-defined objectives, generate outputs such as content, predictions, recommendations or decisions influencing the environments they interact with.’

This is a significant step towards ensuring that AI development and deployment are aligned with ethical standards and respect for human rights.

Will the EU, UK, U.S., China and other countries AI rules conflict?
