Antigua Government considers adopting European AI regulations

4

LOOP: Antigua and Barbuda’s government is contemplating mirroring Europe’s stance on Artificial Intelligence (AI) legislation. Officials are examining the European Parliament’s regulations governing AI use.

In March, the European Parliament passed pioneering legislation, the EU AI Act, marking a significant milestone in regulating AI technologies, particularly those driving tech investments.

Initially introduced in 2021, the EU AI Act categorizes AI technologies based on risk levels, ranging from “unacceptable” (resulting in outright bans) to high, medium, and low hazards.

Cabinet spokesperson Lionel Hurst, speaking at a press briefing, expressed the government’s appreciation for the EU’s comprehensive approach, stating that it provides a solid foundation for Antigua and Barbuda’s own regulatory efforts.

“Since they are the very first to have a comprehensive law governing artificial intelligence and its uses, that it would be very helpful to Antigua and Barbuda that we don’t have to reinvent the wheel all over again. We can begin at least from that vantage point of having had the European Parliament pass into law,” he stated

In addition to studying the EU’s regulations, the government intends to assess approaches taken by other nations in regulating AI.

“I believe that there might be some assistance coming from multilateral institutions, especially so where they want to ensure that there’s a kind of a uniformity throughout the world that will not result in criminal activity emanating from any one place on account of the absence of laws governing artificial intelligence and its uses,” Hurst added.

Antigua and Barbuda aims to position itself at the forefront of AI regulation to address emerging challenges swiftly and effectively.

  1. It may sound good for now,but I honestly believe that in the long run this kind of Al device cause alot of problems between different countries…. especially where secret information are concerned…

  2. How about we get the basics fixed and the fking roads them before worrying about this cooperate push for AI in every fking thing huuuh???
    Can we do that first??? Then come back to this AI crap later when it’s flushed out, tou already have google using AI that’s telling ppl to go fking die or off themselves and you wanna do this now??????.. TF

  3. Welcome to the NWO/The Great Reset/ Agenda 2030/2050…where human beings
    are going to be replaced by AI machines. And if humans want to get ahead in this new world, they’ll have to agree to be chipped.
    Antigua is already all in. Because of financial constraints, It will take the Caribbean a little longer to get the beast system fully up and running. You will be fed a little at a time what changes the island will adopt -This method reduces resistance.

    Yuval Harari told the world this was coming but was the world listening.

  4. Nothing they do is in our interest. The EU AI Act was written by people who are much smarter than Antiguan politicians and academics, who prioritize their own interests as foreign nations. Because they are so much smarter they do so in ways that are completely invisible to us but that will end up economically damaging the entire region. We don’t produce any AI technology products or services. How could we possibly benefit from the spread of this technology? What makes anyone think that this false sense of security will do anything but cause even more money to flow out of the region? We would be better off profiting from ignoring all such regulations completely. There are solutions to bringing more technology related industries to our shores, but our politicians (on both sides) are focused elsewhere.
