"Civil groups urge EU to amend AI law for fundamental rights protection"

From Jurist:

A consortium of 114 civil society organisations Tuesday asked the European Union’s (EU) Parliament, Council and member states to undertake major revisions to the proposed Artificial Intelligence Act unveiled in April this year.

In their letter, the rights groups noted that the regulatory vacuum in the development and use of AI systems is increasingly threatening human rights and the EU’s democratic values. Because AI systems are incorporated in all spheres of public life, including healthcare, social security and policing the groups argued that the new AI legislation must address the “structural, societal, political and economic impacts” of the technology.
