Should Europe regulate neural networks?

Tomorrow, on May 11, members of the European Parliament will meet to vote on a law to control neural networks. The issue has been at the forefront of discussions in recent years, particularly due to the rapid development of artificial intelligence.

The law in question does not seek to ban neural networks altogether, but rather to introduce a human oversight function. The use of certain applications could be banned, but only if they contradict European values, such as a citizen rating system or mass surveillance.

The proposal also suggests restricting the use of AI in critical or high-risk industries. This measure would ensure that the use of AI technology is carried out with the utmost care and consideration, especially in areas where the stakes are high and human safety could be at risk.

It is important to note that while AI has the potential to revolutionise various industries, it also raises significant ethical concerns, particularly in areas such as privacy and accountability. Therefore, it is imperative that regulatory frameworks are put in place to ensure that AI is developed and deployed responsibly.

By implementing this law on neural networks, the EU is taking a proactive approach to regulating the use of AI, with a focus on transparency, accountability and the protection of fundamental rights.

Human oversight is a crucial component of this framework, ensuring that decisions made by AI systems are in line with European values and in the best interests of society as a whole.

The upcoming vote on the Neural Networks Act is an important step towards the responsible use of AI technology in Europe. It highlights the importance of striking a balance between the benefits of AI and the need to mitigate its potential risks, while ensuring that it is consistent with the values and principles that underpin European society.

In Luxembourg

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has seen a proliferation of start-ups in recent years, particularly in the field of artificial intelligence (AI). However, the government has adopted a cautious approach to the development of AI, recognising the importance of implementing an appropriate legal framework to regulate its use.

Recognising the transformative potential of AI for society and the economy, the Luxembourg government has made it a priority to coordinate and take decisions from different perspectives. With a coordinated approach, the Grand Duchy aims to position itself as a leader in digital innovation and become the most advanced digital society in the near future.
