EU Agrees to First Set of Rules to Regulate AI

I am an Altmanist AI maximalist, and I’m unapologetic about it.

I believe in zero restraints on AI, as the concept is obviously retarded if you think about it for 4 seconds.

The one rule that would actually be possible to enforce is to force major companies to post their code on GitHub.

The Guardian:

The world’s first comprehensive laws to regulate artificial intelligence have been agreed in a landmark deal after a marathon 37-hour negotiation between the European Parliament and EU member states.

The agreement was described as “historic” by Thierry Breton, the European Commissioner responsible for a suite of laws in Europe that will also govern social media and search engines, covering giants such as X, TikTok and Google.

Breton said 100 people had been in a room for almost three days to seal the deal. He said it was “worth the few hours of sleep” to make the “historic” deal.

Carme Artigas, Spain’s secretary of state for AI, who facilitated the negotiations, said France and Germany supported the text, amid reports that tech companies in those countries were fighting for a lighter touch approach to foster innovation among small companies.

The agreement puts the EU ahead of the US, China and the UK in the race to regulate artificial intelligence and protect the public from risks that include potential threat to life that many fear the rapidly developing technology carries.

Okay, faggot.

How about “you’re gay”?

How’s that for a regulation?

Officials provided few details on what exactly will make it into the eventual law, which would not take effect until 2025 at the earliest.

The political agreement between the European Parliament and EU member states on new laws to regulate AI was a hard-fought battle, with clashes over foundation models designed for general rather than specific purposes.

But there were also protracted negotiations over AI-driven surveillance, which could be used by the police, employers or retailers to film members of the public in real time and recognise emotional stress.

The European Parliament secured a ban on use of real-time surveillance and biometric technologies including emotional recognition but with three exceptions, according to Breton.

They’re going to use them anyway.

Regulation is stupid.

We’re all in this together, and we just need to ride this train until the rails come off. There is no other option.

It would mean police would be able to use the invasive technologies only in the event of an unexpected threat of a terrorist attack, the need to search for victims and in the prosecution of serious crime.

AI companies who will have to obey the EU’s rules will also likely extend some of those obligations to markets outside the continent, Bradford told the AP. “After all, it is not efficient to re-train separate models for different markets,” she said.

But hey, yeah – censor Western development.

China is going to be slower, but China is a much freer country and they’re going to be a lot more democratic about the development of AI.

So yeah basically, even though I am an Altmanist AI Maximalist, I agree with crippling Altman’s company and letting the Chinese pull ahead.

China needs to invite all the top Western devs.

We need to do this, and we need to do it quickly.

AI is going to set us free or it’s going to totally wipe everything out, and both of those options are fine with me.
