Europe In The Lead In AI Regulation

Europe's approach to AI is divided into four pillars, ranging from harmless to very harmful applications, 

– similar to China's social credit scoring system.

There is some confusion and debate regarding how companies that are central to AI processes 

– but do not generate AI content will be policed by the AI Act.

Start-up firms, especially in France, argue that the Act might hinder innovation 

– and there is a discussion about implementing a regulatory sandbox for young companies.

– Access to AI models and data for researchers is a growing concern, with potential for more EU coordination in this area.

The governance structure for AI regulation is yet to be determined 

– including the possibility of a top-level AI Office at the EU level and individual state AI Offices.

– The UK is aspiring to become a coordinator of international AI regulatory activity and a hub for AI standards.
