The EU’s parliamentarians have reached an agreement and passed a draught of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Act, which would be the first set of comprehensive legislation relating to AI regulation, after months of discussions and two years after draught guidelines were originally put forth. The trilogue is the following phase, where EU legislators and member states negotiate the final specifics of the legislation.

Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), a subset of “General Purpose AI” that includes tools like ChatGPT, reportedly verified earlier suggestions to impose stricter requirements for foundation models. Companies who provide generative AI tools like ChatGPT would be required to disclose whether they have incorporated copyrighted content into their systems under the recommendations.

The report cited an important last-minute change in the draft of the AI Act related to generative AI models, which “would have to be designed and developed in accordance with EU law and fundamental rights, including freedom of expression.”

“The AI Act offers EU lawmakers an opportunity to put an end to the use of discriminatory and rights-violating artificial intelligence (AI) systems,” said Mher Hakobyan, advocacy advisor on AI regulation at Amnesty International, in a blog post.
