– We need an updated strategy, says Linda Hofstad-Hellland (H).

How did Leonardo da Vinci explain this concept? artificial intelligence (AI)artificial intelligence (AI)Artificial intelligence is an information technology that modifies its activity and thus appears intelligent.?

The image above is how the Midjourney AI tool responds to the challenge. It took 30 seconds to make. In recent months, new technology development has exploded. The possibilities are huge. There is also a risk of abuse.

But how do you track bots?

Politicians all over the world are now trying to find out.

In the past week, there have been several hacks. Politicians on the continent think they have found a way AI settlement. Svenja Hahn, an EU parliamentarian, describes the proposal as follows: neither the Tories’ dream of more surveillance, nor the “left’s fantasy of over-regulation”.

On Wednesday, the European Parliament introduced a new draft law on artificial intelligence. According to the plan, it will be adopted in June.

– Han said, it is a powerful compromise that regulates KI proportionately, protects citizens’ rights, contributes to innovation and promotes the economy. Reuters.

It will be the first law of its kind. Attempting to “tame” ChatGPT and other forms of AI technology.

What the European Union decides will also have dire consequences for us in Norway.

New restrictions

The road to a new EU bill has been long. It has been nearly two years since the European Commission first submitted the proposal. Representatives of EU countries have been writing for months uractive.

Some procedures in the new law:

  • AI tools should be ranked according to how dangerous they are to be believed. Small, medium and high are unacceptable. It depends, for example, on whether the technology can be used to monitor or share fault information.
  • Companies that develop AI tools that can generate text or images, such as ChatGPT or Midjourney, must determine if they have used copyrighted source material.
  • These AI tools must also be developed in accordance with the fundamental rights of the European Union, for example the right to freedom of expression.
  • Police, employers and educational institutions will be prohibited from using AI technology that recognizes people’s emotions.

It is not just the European Parliament that is working hard to set the driving rules for new technology. On Sunday, the G7 countries, such as Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Great Britain and the United States, agreed to introduce the regulations. The goal is to create room for development within what they call a “risk-based” framework.

Many authorities have long called for better control. Among them is the director of the oil fund Nikolai Tangin.

– We believe that the authorities and governments should make the regulations, Tangen said in an interview with financial times.

While he waits for government regulations, Tangen plans to make his own proposals for guidelines for the companies in which the fund invests.

Politicians lack ownership

Another person missing a more active administration in Norway is Inga Strümke. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer and Informatics Technology at NTNU and has written the recent book, Machines That Think.

– My biggest concern is that politicians lack ownership of this matter, that they don’t think this is something they want to address and direct in the desired direction, Inga Strumke tells Aftenposten.

I’ve always been disappointed by what you believe to be a lack of will to understand and take action on technology. This is despite the fact that there has been no shortage of warnings from professionals. But now that most people can suddenly start using AI, things may start to shift.

– All professionals can shout it out loud in their field, but when ordinary people start to feel it, it takes on political value, she says.

Among the politicians now involved is Linda Hofstad-Hellland (H). She fears that developments in artificial intelligence will move faster than the government can manage.

– When I ask the government what strategy they have for KI, they only talk about broadband network development, you say.

She believes that the government has stopped “technological development”.

Hillland was Minister for Digitalization from 2020 to 2021. She maintains that there are huge opportunities for the use of artificial intelligence and that this technology will create many jobs. But it calls for a roadmap and framework that can identify both the possibilities and limitations inherent in AI.

Missing procedures from the Støre government

We will use artificial intelligence in schools, health services, police, business and in our daily lives. We need a discussion about the underlying ethical principles that will determine how this technology is used, she says.

– The Conservative Party put forward a proposal for a national strategy for KI while you were in government in 2020. Weren’t you able to create that road map at that time?

– We were one of the first countries to come up with a separate strategy for artificial intelligence. It was a good foundation. But in the past 2-3 years, the use of AI has fundamentally changed. Therefore, there is a great need for an updated strategy that enables us to protect the rights, freedoms and privacy of citizens in a way that enables this technology to be used in a responsible manner, Hillland said.

Right-wing politician Linda Hofstad-Hellland faults the government’s KI measures.

She points out that Norway will get a good impetus from the new EU law with regulations.

– It will also become part of Norwegian legislation, in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). But we need more than that. We need frameworks and principles for Norwegian society. But she says there is still no indication that the government sees this need.

Last week I put up a file written question to Municipal Minister Sigbjørn Gjelsvik on the government’s KI strategy. The question has not yet been answered.

Part of the problem is that digitization is only one part of the senior municipal minister’s scope of responsibility. She says it is not clear to the vast majority of people how this government works with digitization and which of them bears responsibility for how AI is used in Norway.

– Little new in Høyre’s plans

Aftenposten asked the municipal minister to comment on Helland’s comments. So far, the ministry has not responded to the inquiry. But he did Talk to NRK About a similar move from the Conservative Party in the past.

– We will of course consider all the inputs, but Høyre’s points contain little new compared to the existing principles and what the government is already working on in making the strategy work, Gjelsvik tells NRK.

At the same time, the new national digitization strategy should be much broader than just dealing with artificial intelligence, he adds.

If Picasso imagined artificial intelligence, it might look like this, according to the AI ​​tool Midjourney.
