CDT Submits Comments to European Commission’s Impact Assessment on Artificial Intelligence

The Center for Democracy & Technology submitted comments towards the European Commission’s choice of regulatory approaches for artificial intelligence. We respectfully offer the following suggestions:

  • Be more precise. No single approach to regulating “AI” will make sense in all scenarios.
  • Clarify where existing law applies, identify gaps. Many harms have already been addressed through legislation. Clarifying existing law for novel applications should be step one.
  • Refine existing soft-law approaches. CDT generally supports a combination of clarifying and enforcing existing law alongside voluntary adherence to principles expressed in soft law documents such as the findings of the High Level Expert Group on AI.
