“The AI ​​Act in no way leads to the moving revolution of artificial intelligence”

Mmedicine, industry, research, science, commerce, education, services, culture, sport, leisure… artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to profoundly change almost all aspects of our lives.

Europe did not wait for AI to become a buzzword to grab hold of it. We have been working on this for five years with the academic, scientific and entrepreneurial worlds, with NGOs, Member States, European parliamentarians… For years, we have trained the best engineers. We have recruited scientific talents to develop new AI languages. We have a number of entrepreneurs and innovative start-ups launched into the global race.

We also now benefit from the greatest computing power in the world – with the joint company EuroHPC – made available to the academic world and start-ups, and this is a prime asset for the emergence of an AI ecosystem.

Let’s put an end to a sort of urban legend: no, the AI ​​Act in no way leads to the ongoing revolution of artificial intelligence.

Applications involving risks to our fundamental rights, for example in employment or education, will be required to obtain European certification before being placed on the market. The objective aims to ensure the reliability of the AI ​​system meeting the requirements of security, human control and data governance. Other applications, such as social rating (social notation), will simply be prohibited, because they are contrary to our values.
