forum. The European Commission announced its plan to regulate artificial intelligence (AI) on April 21. Goal: to construct its use and define a third method that is different from China’s totalitarian practices and the “surveillance capitalism” of large US technology companies. In other words, Europe intends to base its technological development strategy on an ethical basis, respecting the values contained in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.
Since its inception in the 1950s, a series of technologies combined in the name of artificial intelligence has been the object of political envy. The bet to become a first-order power, as if the person who has mastered the highest state, will inevitably and forever conquer all his opponents.
Based on the duality of these technologies, this fantasy exploration with the taste of the Cold War, the atomic bomb race, and space conquest is suitable for civilian and commercial use, as well as for military and police. In China and the United States, artificial intelligence is clearly a privileged tool to achieve three major political goals: ensuring national prosperity, social and political stability, and projecting power to the rest of the world. In doing so, the ethical legal framework of artificial intelligence is severely restricted there, so it is expected to be applied to the development of China’s social credit system and the lethal autonomous weapon system (SALA).

Artificial intelligence will be established there as a tool for progress, serving competitiveness, health, and environmental protection. ; In short, a series of technologies in line with EU principles and values.This is why the regulatory proposal is built around the concept of risk (“Unacceptable”, “High”…) It also intends to prohibit a certain number of uses, such as behavior manipulation, exploiting people’s vulnerability based on age or physical or mental disorders, and even remote and online biometric identification. ” real time”. At the very least, this is the suggestion for a quick read of the proposal.
