On 21st April, the European Commission unveiled its long-awaited proposal for a regulation laying down harmonized rules on artificial intelligence and amending certain union legislative acts. The proposal is the result of several years of preparatory work by the commission and its advisers. The IAPP breaks down both the proposal and next steps for the regulation. European Digital Rights (EDRi) believes the proposed new AI law calls out harms but does nothing to resolve them and that the proposals must go further to prevent surveillance and discrimination.
The Register reported that a draft EU Regulation on a European Approach For AI had leaked online. Meanwhile, the US Federal Trade Commission has published its own recommendations for organisations using AI.
