Germany, France, and Italy have come to a consensus on how artificial intelligence (AI) should be regulated in the future, according to a joint paper obtained by Reuters. This agreement is expected to expedite negotiations at the European level. The three countries advocate for binding voluntary commitments for both large and small AI providers within the European Union.
The European Commission, European Parliament, and EU Council are presently engaged in discussions on how the EU should position itself in this nascent field. In June, the Parliament unveiled the „AI Act“ in an effort to mitigate safety risks associated with AI applications and prevent discriminatory effects, all while fostering innovation in Europe. Throughout the talks, the Parliament suggested that the code of conduct should initially be binding only for major AI providers, predominantly from the United States. Nevertheless, the three EU governments cautioned against this perceived competitive advantage for smaller European providers, citing potential diminished trust in the security of these smaller firms and subsequently fewer customers.
The governments argue that the rules of conduct and transparency should apply universally to all providers operating within the EU, regardless of size. At the outset, the paper states that no sanctions should be imposed. However, if violations of the code of conduct are identified after a certain period, a system of sanctions could be implemented. The document also underscores the establishment of a European authority to oversee compliance with the standards.
Germany’s Economy Ministry, which jointly oversees this issue with the Ministry of Digital Affairs, asserts that AI itself should not be directly regulated by laws and state control, but rather the focus should be on regulating its application. The paper emphasizes that the state should not separately regulate the development of AI models that are not yet in use or have not yet entered the market.
Germany and Italy will discuss AI-related topics when their governments meet in Berlin on Wednesday. Meanwhile, the German government will host a digital summit in Jena, Thuringia, on Monday and Tuesday, which will bring together representatives from politics, business, and science. The summit will serve as a platform to address various issues surrounding AI.
