On June 13, 2023, DW News invited Prof. Yesha Sivan to discuss AI regulation following the EU lawmakers’ debate on AI Act to regulate some AI uses.
The new AGI technology is considered a high-risk tool in some uses, such as public facial recognition, job applications, medical devices, and more.
Prof. Sivan adds his views on the urgent need to regulate new technologies to limit their powers. We have failed before, he says, with social networking limitations, for example.
Innovation is limited by regulations, agrees Sivan, but when the borders are clear, creativity can flourish.
