Brussels, Dec 7 (EFE).- The institutions of the European Union, which since Wednesday afternoon have been trying to finalize an agreement on the artificial intelligence law, have already agreed on the rules to regulate the foundational models on which they are based systems like ChatGPT, sources familiar with the negotiations told EFE.
The way to regulate this type of systems, which have exploded in the last year, has been one of the main points of friction between the community institutions when it comes to agreeing on the EU artificial intelligence law, one of the first global standards. about this technology.
However, there are still “many things” to close, the same sources said.
The Council of the EU, the European Parliament and the European Commission began the meeting yesterday at 3:00 p.m. (2:00 p.m. GMT) to try to agree on the regulations and gave themselves time until this Thursday at 8:00 a.m. (7:00 a.m. GMT) to close the agreement.
However, this morning they decided to continue negotiations for longer.
The other major point of friction in the negotiations are the exceptions in the regulations to allow real-time biometric surveillance in public spaces.
European governments want it to be used to prevent crimes such as terrorism, sexual abuse or the protection of critical infrastructure, always with prior judicial authorization.
The European Parliament, on the other hand, opposes its use because it considers that biometric surveillance violates fundamental rights, although the rapporteur of the norm in the European Parliament, the social democrat Brando Benifei, opened yesterday to allowing it if there are strong guarantees to protect the rights.
