The European Union Destined To Enact AI Law Despite Lingering Doubts
  • The European Union is in the final stages of enacting the AI Law. 
  • Member of the European Parliament, Eva Maydell, said that they are laying a common European vision for the future of technology. 
  • According to Luiza Jarovsky, there are potential benefits associated with the implementation of AI legislation.

A report by ABC News stated that lawmakers in the European Parliament are poised to vote in favor of the Artificial Intelligence Act, five years after it was first proposed. The voting will take place on March 13.  

Furthermore, the regulatory framework may serve as a model for other regions, promoting a global standard for AI governance. The European Union is a significant player in the international arena, and its approach to AI regulations could influence the global discourse on the responsible use of AI technologies. 

A Bloomberg report provides evidence that there is indeed still some skepticism about the enactment of the AI law. The French and German governments pushed back against some of the strictest ideas for regulating generative AI, arguing that the rules would hurt European startups like France’s Mistral AI and Germany’s Aleph Alpha GmbH.

Contrary to these lingering doubts, Luiza Jarovsky, CEO of Implement Privacy, a privacy and AI organization, stated her opinion on the advantages that AI governance will provide. She said from her point of view that the professional revolution around AI will be similar to what happened in the field of privacy & data protection. “In the last few years, the field has grown, matured, and specialized so much that there are constantly new job openings in a variety of different positions. I think this will happen in the AI field too.”

Furthermore, Eva Maydell, the member of the European Parliament, said, “We’re laying out a common European vision for the future of this technology: one where AI is more democratic and safe.” This is because the legislation would put an end to the use of AI for detecting emotions in workplaces and schools, as well as limit how it can be used in high-stakes situations like dealing with job applications.
