The upcoming agreement aims to accelerate and improve the use of artificial intelligence in fields such as agriculture, healthcare, emergency response, climate forecasting and power management.
The European Commission and the US are in the final stages of a mutual AI agreement. This is the first such agreement. Both governments have previously worked on AI agreements on specific themes such as privacy. By creating a global, umbrella agreement, the EU and the US want to speed up developments and improve government services and operations.
Create strong models
Reuters news agency He spoke to a US government official in response to the upcoming deal. “The magic of the deal is to build collaborative models, where the data is,” the official said. “The US data doesn't leave the US, and that goes for the European data as well. The model that gets built speaks to all the data, it gives the most varied data and therefore the best model.
Through this initiative, governments will have greater access to detailed and data-rich AI models. This leads to more efficient emergency response and power management, but also other benefits. For example, the US, like European countries, collects data on how electricity is generated, where it is used and how to adjust power supplies to avoid blackouts, the official said.
EU member states agree on basic principles of AI legislation
The partnership is an agreement between the US government and the European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union. The union includes 27 member states. According to the senior official, there is an intention to open up the agreement to other countries. These countries will be invited to join the treaty in the coming months.
