Why AI cannot be regulated by technical measures alone

AI And technical mesures

The regulation of artificial intelligence must address the power of tech companies, as technical measures alone will not be enough to prevent the harms caused by AI-driven technologies, says report

Any attempt to regulate artificial intelligence (AI) must not rely solely on technical measures to mitigate potential harms, and should instead move to address the fundamental power imbalances between those who develop or deploy the technology and those who are subject to it, says a report commissioned by European Digital Rights (EDRi).

The European Commission’s (EC) proposed Artificial Intelligence Act (AIA) was published in April 2021 and sought to create a risk-based, market-led approach to regulating AI through the establishment of self-assessments, transparency procedures and various technical standards.
