The European Union and USA announced on Wednesday a draft of “code of Conduct” common about artificial intelligence (AI)which would be applied on a voluntary basis.
“In the coming weeks, we are going to present a draft code of conduct on artificial intelligence”said the European Commissioner for Competition, Margrethe Vestager, at a joint press conference with the head of US diplomacy, Antony Blinken.
The objective is “establish voluntary codes of conduct that are open to all like-minded countries”Blinken said, when Westerners fear letting China take the lead in regulating AI.
The idea is to have “very very soon” a final proposal on which companies in the sector, dominated by American giants such as Microsoft, Meta or Google, “They may voluntarily commit”Vestager said.
In the presence of Sam Altman, the founder of the chatbot ChatGPT that has revolutionized artificial intelligence, this question was one of the main topics of a meeting of the Council of Trade and Technology (CCT) in Luleå, in the north of Sweden.
The body was created in 2021 between the 27 members of the EU and the United States to turn the page on the trade disputes of the years of Donald Trump’s presidency.
“The EU and the US share the common view that artificial intelligence technologies bring great opportunities, but also pose risks for our societies”the two major powers said in a final statement.
