What is the News?

Group of Seven (G7) countries has said that a “risk-based” regulation of AI could be a potential first step towards creating a template to regulate emerging tools such as Open AI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard.

What is a risk based approach to regulate AI Chatbots?

G7’s “risk-based” approach could involve graded regulation, with a lesser compliance burden on developers or users of AI tool deployed in areas such as the word processing business or generating music as compared to the regulatory supervision on, say, a tool aiding doctors in medical diagnosis or one linked to a face-reading device that’s matching people’s identities.

How have different governments responded to generative AI tools like ChatGPT?

EU: EU has taken a predictably tough stance, with the proposed AI Act segregating artificial intelligence by use-case scenarios based broadly on the degree of invasiveness and risk. Italy has become the first major Western country to ban ChatGPT out of concerns over privacy.

UK: It took a ‘light-touch’ approach that aims to foster, and not stifle, innovation in this nascent field. Japan too has taken an accommodative approach to AI developers.

China: It has been developing its own regulatory regime. It has also put out a 20-point draft to regulate generative AI services, including mandates to ensure accuracy and privacy, prevent discrimination and guarantee protection of intellectual property rights.

India: It has said that it is not considering any law to regulate the artificial intelligence sector. 

US: It has built on a Blueprint for an AI Bill of Rights. The bill proposes a nonbinding roadmap for the responsible use of AI.

– The bill has spelt out five core principles to govern the effective development of AI systems, with special attention to the unintended consequences of civil and human rights abuses.
