AI Act In The EU: What's Up

If you are an EU citizen, you'll get more control over AI affecting your life.

The EU's new AI Act is a big step forward.

After three years in the making, the EU's landmark AI Act is a reality. It aims to protect citizens while fostering innovation.

Here's a breakdown of what you need to know:

𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁'𝘀 𝗕𝗮𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗱

↳ AI systems deemed too risky for fundamental rights (e.g., in healthcare, policing)

↳ Systems exploiting vulnerabilities or manipulating

↳ Real-time facial recognition in public spaces (with exceptions)

𝗧𝗿𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗽𝗮𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗰𝘆 𝗶𝘀 𝗞𝗲𝘆

↳ Clear labeling of deepfakes and AI-generated content

↳ You'll know when you're interacting with an AI chatbot

↳ More insight into how AI companies build their models

𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗥𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁𝘀 𝗠𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿

↳ You can file complaints if harmed by an AI system

↳ You can demand explanations for AI-driven decisions

↳ High-risk AI developers must ensure human oversight

𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗥𝗼𝗮𝗱 𝗔𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗱

This is just the start. Regulators and companies have a lot of work to do for full implementation. The AI Act is a bold move, but its success depends on effective enforcement and our own understanding of AI's impact.
