EU Parliament approves restrictions on ChatGPT and other AI
What European Parliment do?
Committees of the European Parliament will lay out their stance for upcoming talks with EU member states that want to develop legislation to curb misuse of artificial intelligence while allowing for innovation.
When it started?
With a proposal from the European Commission two years ago, Brussels began to work towards this goal of regulating technology. At the conclusion of last year, EU member states developed their negotiating stance. However, since then, ChatGPT, Midjourney, and other AI apps have emerged, focusing the parliament’s attention on the matter and producing a deluge of changes that need to be taken into account.
Why AI is the Double Edged Sword ?
Although AI holds great promise, it also has two sides to its tech tool. For example, technology might improve medical evaluations and save lives, whereas totalitarian governments might use it to perfect mass monitoring. People signed up to watch ChatGPT create essays, poems, and perform translations within seconds when it first launched at the end of last year, and this piqued their interest and fascinated them.
The commission’s proposal already compels image-generating software to disclose that their output was generated artificially and mandates that users be informed when they come into touch with a machine.Outright bans would be uncommon and would only apply to programmes that violate European principles, such as China’s widespread monitoring and citizen rating systems.
