EU publishes ethical development guidelines for AI

The EU has laid out a list of principles for creating “trustyworthy AI”. The point where many of the guidelines would begin to apply is still technically a way off, but they are looking to get ahead of development to be able to shift its direction away from more dangerous potential outcomes. 


The guidelines have no enforcement mechanism, yet represent a large step towards more comprehensive national and international policy. The EU has continued to be the leader in monitoring Big Tech and now has a first mover advantage in setting the ground work for the ethical development of AI.
