About the EU AI Act on RTV

On Wednesday, 13th March 2024, the European Parliament adopted the EU Artificial Intelligence Act.

This topical issue was also discussed in the radio program Intelekta – Radio Prvi entitled Ethical development of technology. Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, founder and head of the ODIPI Institute, also took part in the radio show, along with guests Alja Isaković and Domen Savič.

Introductory thoughts by Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič: “Artificial intelligence is a technology of the present and the future that can bring a lot of good. But it can also be a technology that brings many disadvantages if it is done and/or used incorrectly. The EU AI Act is the first or one of the steps in the right direction towards comprehensive regulation of artificial intelligence in the EU.”

The aim of the EU AI Act is to ensure that the use of artificial intelligence is safe, compatible with fundamental human rights and reliable. At the same time, the European Union (EU) is working to promote innovation and investment in artificial intelligence across the EU. As part of the European Digital Strategy, the EU wants to regulate the field of artificial intelligence in order to ensure better conditions for the development and use of this innovative technology and to reduce the risks of decisions made by such artificial intelligence systems. With the adoption of the EU AI Act, the EU has thus obtained the world’s first comprehensive legislation on artificial intelligence.
