EU Approves New AI Regulation: Balancing Innovation and Safety in the Digital Age

The EU has finally approved a new regulation on artificial intelligence, allowing member states to create their own national legislation. This regulation was developed with significant input from Finland, particularly in the health and safety sectors.

The European Parliament finalized the regulation on March 13, which aims to restrict the use of AI while ensuring the safety and protection of citizens’ rights. The regulation prohibits real-time biometric monitoring and profiling based on sensitive characteristics, and requires clear labeling of content created with AI.

Finland’s concerns about pre-written analytics systems and potential heavy regulation for public administration decision-making systems were addressed in the negotiations. The regulation aims to harmonize requirements for medical devices and prevent duplication of work. This regulatory framework is seen as a positive step towards creating a safe environment that respects fundamental rights and provides a competitive advantage in AI development.

With the completion of this regulation, member states can now develop their own national AI legislation. This legislation is expected to clarify concerns around applying AI in various sectors, such as healthcare. The atmosphere in Finland is hopeful for the future of AI development under this new regulatory framework.

In conclusion, this new EU regulation on artificial intelligence allows member states to create their own national legislation that addresses specific concerns around AI use in various sectors. It also ensures that the use of AI is regulated in a way that protects citizens’ rights and promotes responsible development.
