Paris was the last obstacle to reaching an agreement.
France now accepts the European Union’s draft regulation governing artificial intelligence (AI), but under strict conditions, we learned on Friday from a European diplomatic source.
Paris was the last hurdle to reaching a deal, multiple sources said previously. Among the conditions imposed by France, which does not intend to impede the development of this technology, is in particular respect for a balance between transparency and preservation of industrial secretssaid the source.
France also refuses any excessive administrative restrictions in implementing the obligations imposed on high-risk AI systems, he added. The Twenty-Seven are expected to officially approve this new regulation this Friday, at the level of their ambassadors to the EU.
