In defense of Europe's approach to AI

If you are looking for some respite from COVID-19-related posts, this week, we delve into Europe’s approach to regulating AI. While many have attacked the European Commission's recent AI White Paper, much of this is unfair, misguided, and fails to appreciate the very delicate line that policymakers must tread here.

It is worth recalling that, following the EC’s proposal in 2012 to strengthen online privacy rights and the digital economy, it took over 6 years for the GDPR as we know it, to come into force. Therefore, the current AI debate is just the beginning of what is expected to mature into a world-leading AI regulatory regime.
