The European Commission has published an AI White Paper designed to promote the development and deployment of Artificial Intelligence, ‘based on European Values’, as part of a framework for a wider data strategy. The commission believes that Europe can set ‘global standards on technological development while putting people first’ The core idea, says Ars Technica, is to make the treatment of data more universal and less segmented and describes the paper as ‘full of aspirational language and lofty goals’. However the Financial Times reports concerns in the tech industry that the new rules will stifle innovation, while campaigners argue that the framework provides insufficient protections from invasive technology such as facial recognition.
