Position paper - AI Act - updated position

28 Nov 2022
Digital Economy

Regulating artificial intelligence (AI) is a difficult but necessary balancing act. The European Commission aims to set robust safeguards for AI systems that could pose risks to health, safety or fundamental rights. The AI Act can serve to achieve these objectives, and it can create a prosperous market for realiable and ethical AI systems, but there are areas that require some refinement.

For instance, the AI Act should:

  1. set a clear and unambiguous definition of AI;
  2. avoid requirements and compliance obligations for types of AI tools that are not intended for a particular purpose;
  3. frame the requirements for high-risk AI systems in a flexible way;
  4. ensure a balanced allocation of obligations between providers and users; and
  5. maintain self-assessment of conformity.
