The Artificial Intelligence Act has just been announced, being the first measure with which the European Union wants to regulate the use of AI.
Regulating Artificial Intelligence is not an easy task, but the European Union has just taken the first step to manage how this new technology that has just arrived to revolutionize industries and the lives of users is used. AI has brought about a huge change in a very short time, now we will have to see how countries adapt.
The measures collected by the European Union are framed within the Artificial Intelligence Act, this being the first compilation of indications to regulate and legislate the use of artificial intelligence. Among all the measures that are included throughout the proposed text, there are several that are interesting because they are intended for specific instruments such as ChatGPT.
Yes, OpenAI seems to have been in the spotlight for a few weeks now. Italy was one of the first countries to ban the use of ChatGPT due to the little information it offers about the use of user data and, furthermore, because many people who accessed it were minors and there was no verification of their age. .
Now the European Parliament is developing an act which aims to shed some light on the issue of artificial intelligence and its use. The Artificial Intelligence Act or AI Act has been approved with 84 votes in favor, 7 against and 12 abstentions. We are going to see several of its most interesting measures that are compiled in this act.
AI Act: this is the act of the European Union that intends to regulate AI
Facial recognition is prohibited. This regulation is interesting since it comes just after the fine to the GSMA for the use of this biometric system to access the MWC 2023 held in Barcelona. The AI Act prohibits the collection of biometric data for further categorization along with the tracking of these images.
come on, what AI cannot be used to identify a person who has been recorded by security cameras nor can this system be used to generate databases in which the face is related to certain crimes. Neither can AI be used to generate emotional identification systems in any type of field.
ChatGPT will have to share information with the European Union since it is sought that this AI does not generate any type of model based on content protected by copyright. In addition, OpenAI should indicate the information that has been entered into this AI in order to be completely sure that no protected information was used.
