The European Union is set to release new regulations for artificial intelligence that are expected to focus on transparency and oversight as the region seeks to differentiate its approach from those of the United States and China. On Wednesday, EU technology chief Margrethe Vestager will unveil a wide-ranging plan designed to bolster the region's competitiveness. While transformative technologies such as AI have been labeled critical to economic survival, Europe is perceived as slipping behind the U.S., where development is being led by tech giants with deep pockets, and China, where the central government is leading the push. Europe has in recent years sought to emphasize fairness and ethics when it comes to tech policy. These systems would require human oversight and audits, according to a widely leaked draft of the new rules.
