White House Tech Chief Calls Europe’s AI Principles Clumsy Compared to US Approach

The European Union released a white paper Wednesday outlining principles for regulating artificial intelligence, similar in nature to a set of principles issued by the US government in January. However, at least one aspect of the EU’s document falls short, according to US Chief Technology Officer Michael Kratsios.
That assessment might be reading too much into a white paper which, while it will inform future regulatory policies, is not itself a regulatory framework, according to Aaron Cooper, vice president of global policy at BSA | The Software Alliance.
“It’s too early in both the development of AI policy in the EU and the US to know for sure whether they’re really going to diverge,” Cooper told Nextgov Thursday. “The white paper itself doesn’t create a regulatory framework. It is laying the foundation for more conversations around what the right framework would be: where there’s significant risk, where there’s less risk. I think we’re doing that in the US, as well.”
