The European Union’s executive arm in April proposed a bill to curb the use of artificial intelligence for applications like hiring and policing. It is one of the broadest efforts yet by a Western government to regulate AI.
The legislation would increase regulatory supervision and standards for the development and use of AI in designated “high-risk” areas, such as college admissions and loan applications; limit the use of facial recognition by police; and ban certain uses of AI.
The legislation “can be a critical component in building the sort of trust that is a net positive for everyone,” said Christian Troncoso, senior director of policy at trade group BSA | The Software Alliance.
