Reviewing EU AI Regulations

Straight away it will outlaw in the EU some of the total surveillance AI being sold to American police forces by firms such as Palantir. Among other things, it will give rights to citizens to see what data was used to train AI, and how AI decisions were arrived at.

This is good. But the EU should also start giving incentives towards attracting talent and creating AI ventures. At this point, we are only regulating and not innovating.

AIA restricts EuropeanAI developers badly and cripples their ability to compete. As result, the local market will be owned by US and PRC companies who will find their way around the compliance

Europe crushing their technological development yet again for the sake of babysitting their population. Meanwhile the USA shits out another billion dollar tech startup.

The EU already has a major problem with our lack of a proper tech sector, which means we have no good alternatives to all the tech from the US, which at the end of the day makes us hyper dependent on US tech regardless of what kind of regulations we enact, unless of course we want to not be at all competitive.

Which is something I feel in my own job, where we’re not allowed to use certain Microsoft services that would be great for what we need to do, so instead we’re having to try and homebrew solutions, which will take a lot longer to do, cost a lot more to do, and will never in a million years be anywhere near as good as what Microsoft has readily available.

And bolting together AI regulations that apply within the EU before what we now think of as AI is even 2 years old, seems to me like a surefire way of ensuring that the EU will also not have any kind of proper AI sector. Because good fucking luck to the people in the EU that are gonna try to compete with the US or Chinese tech titans while having to comply with EU regulations already at this early stage

✍️Word of the Day

I was always bad at writing, and fancy words are useless. However, I like to make exceptions and today’s one is Neurotic

Neurotic means you’re afflicted by neurosis, a word that has been in use since the 1700s to describe mental, emotional, or physical reactions that are drastic and irrational. At its root, a neurotic behavior is an automatic, unconscious effort to manage deep anxiety.
