• AI Europe takes the first step to regulate ChatGPT and other artificial intelligence tools

Lawmakers in the European Parliament have taken a first step towards adopting a law regulating Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools, such as ChatGPT. Members of the Civil Liberties and Consumer Protection committees voted overwhelmingly to limit the use of AI in the bloc, while still incentivizing innovation in the sector.

The text will be presented to the full parliament in June for adoption and if approved, negotiations will begin with EU member states in order to agree on a final law. The EU wants to be the first bloc in the world to equip itself with a comprehensive legal framework to limit the possible excesses of AI, without harming innovation.

Two years ago, Brussels proposed an ambitious draft regulation through an initiative of the European Commission. Member countries defined their positions at the end of 2022.

But parliamentary scrutiny has dragged on and been delayed in recent months with controversy over the dangers of AI tools capable of creating texts or images.
