Europe wants to ban AI for widespread surveillance

The European Union is considering banning the use of AI for multiple purposes, including full monitoring and evaluation of social credit.

It was released on the basis of a leaked proposal that was first brought online by Politico and will be officially announced next week.

If the draft proposal were adopted, the European Union could impose a position on specific AI applications that would set it apart from the United States and China.

Monitoring methods for some use cases are similar to the European Digital Data Protection Rules under the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Member states may need to set up a dashboard to test and validate high-risk AI systems.

Companies that develop or sell AI programs that are banned in the European Union (including companies located in other parts of the world) can be fined up to 4% of global sales.

The draft regulation contains:

  •     Messaging systems prevent accidental surveillance, including systems that track people directly in the physical environment or collect data from other sources.
  •     It is forbidden to create a social credit intelligence system that evaluates a person's reliability based on social behavior or expected personality traits.
  •     Special permission to use intelligent remote identification systems (such as facial recognition in public places).
  •     People should be warned when interacting with messaging systems unless clearly known about their use and context.
  •     New surveillance of high-risk information systems includes information that poses a direct threat to security, such as: self-driving cars, and information that can affect an individual's livelihood, such as: b. Information about a person's livelihood. Employment, court rulings and oversight. Balance history.
  •     Evaluate high-risk information systems prior to commissioning, including ensuring that these systems can be interpreted by human managers and are tested for deviations from tested and high-level records. Quality.
  •     The European Commission for Artificial Intelligence, made up of national representatives, was created to help the commission identify smart systems deemed risky and recommend changes to the ban.
