DOT Europe, joined by 14 EU Digital Industry organisations, has sent a formal letter to policymakers to regulate High-Risk Use Instead of Technology in the upcoming AI Act.
The Industry organisations are concerned that some of the proposed measures would run counter to the objectives of the regulation and would disproportionately impact European businesses and consumers. In particular, the departure from the AI Act’s original risk-based and technology-neutral approach risks inhibiting the development and use of AI in Europe. Moreover, the multiplication of overlapping rules in the AI Act, the introduction of vague concepts, as well as the broad extension of the list of high-risk use cases and the list of prohibited AI systems, would create unnecessary red tape and legal uncertainty.
Europe has a unique opportunity to define sensible rules for the development, deployment, and use of AI for the next decade, and to set a strong example for the world on how to best regulate AI. Industry is hopeful that the co-legislators will strike the right balance between trust and
innovation in AI.
