The prevailing narrative of the EU’s AI Act being the comprehensive and balanced regulation of AI is misleading. In my latest article published in CRi, I provide a critical perspective on the AI Act, highlighting its deficiencies in addressing the complex challenges posed by rapidly advancing AI technologies.

I argue that the AI Act’s over-reliance on transparency and evaluation measures alone is insufficient to effectively protect individuals from the potential harms of AI.

The current approach to AI regulation, with its numerous exceptions and shortcomings, creates tremendous compliance costs that many SMEs will struggle to afford, without providing effective protection for citizens. The result in a lose-lose situation that benefits no one.

Call to Action: I call for a rethinking of AI regulation, moving away from symbolic gestures towards more effective, adaptive foresight-driven policies that can keep pace with rapid advancements in AI. I argue for the modernization of tech governance, and a different approach to regulatory frameworks that prioritize the enhancement of societal well-being.

Let’s work together to shape a future where AI regulation truly serves the best interests of society!
