As the use of AI accelerates around the world, policymakers are asking questions about what frameworks should guide the design and use of AI, and how it can benefit society. The EU is the first institution to take a major step to answer these questions through a proposed legal framework for AI released on 21 April 2021. In doing so, the EU is seeking to establish a safe environment for AI innovation and to position itself as a leader in setting "the global gold standard" for regulating AI. This is a positive aspect of the proposal as AI is a broad set of technology, tools and applications. Shifting the focus away from AI technology, which can have significantly different impacts depending on the application for which it is used, helps to mitigate the risk of divergent requirements for AI products and services.
