The European Union has taken a significant step toward regulating artificial intelligence with the approval of the EU Artificial Intelligence Act. The legislation, which bans real-time facial recognition and introduces transparency requirements for generative AI tools like ChatGPT, aims to protect human rights and ensure the safe and responsible use of AI technologies. In light of this development, renowned AI expert and author Hassan Taher provides his insights on the EU’s move toward AI regulation, leveraging his background and expertise in the field.
“I believe that AI technology has the potential to bring about significant positive change in the world, but many people are hesitant to embrace it fully,” Hassan Taher told IdeaMensch. “While some may disagree, I believe that with responsible use, AI can actually make the world a better place for everyone.”
