Under the EU AI Act, subliminal influencing, exploitation of vulnerable populations or biometric identification are considered to be high-risk uses of AI. For example, the AI Act regulates which datasets generative AI can be trained on. This is the first document of its kind, and it will affect all those that come after it. Is the regulation it establishes sufficient? Will the EU undermine its competitiveness and technological capacity with overly strict rules? Can the EU effectively regulate systems that for the most part do not even originate in Europe? And is it even possible to legislate effectively in a sector that is still so dynamically developing?
