EU closes in on AI Act with last-minute ChatGPT-related adjustmentson April 28, 2023 at 12:49 Computerworld
The European Parliament is now only days away from formalizing its position on the world’s first Artificial Intelligence (AI) Act, as EU lawmakers reached a provisional political agreement on Thursday.
Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) have been conflicted until last week on the content of the Act and have finally agreed on some of the compromise amendments, with a few last-minute adjustments pertaining to generative AI.
“The compromised amendments were agreed upon yesterday through internal talks between the rapporteurs and shadow rapporteurs and will be voted on in the committee by MEPs on May 11, 2023,” an EP official said. “This will be followed by a voting in plenary in June, after which talks with Council (member states) will start with the view of reaching an interinstitutional agreement before the end of the year.”
