The EU is facing an immense technological challenge.

France, Germany, and Italy are among the countries that oppose proposed artificial intelligence (AI) legislation intended at regulating foundational AI models.

Agnes Callamard, Secretary-General of Amnesty International, asked France, Germany, and Italy to change their positions and endorse the AI Act. Callamard further emphasized the significance of this measure in protecting fundamental rights and mitigating the hazards posed by AI technologies.


Callamard questioned the idea that innovation and regulation are mutually exclusive, which is commonly propagated by major tech corporations in order to escape rigorous laws.

She noted that this “false dichotomy” has long been utilized to avoid accountability, and that the current scenario emphasizes the firms’ disproportionate power in setting global AI regulations.

The EU’s planned AI Act is more than simply another piece of law; it is a pioneering effort to develop a complete framework for AI governance.


This act intends to defend fundamental human rights and prevent artificial intelligence (AI) technology from increasing discrimination, particularly in sensitive areas like as mass surveillance, policing, and welfare distribution.

A key issue is the potential impact on marginalized groups such as migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers.

Callamard’s declaration comes at a critical point, as authorities increasingly use uncontrolled AI systems for a variety of objectives ranging from welfare evaluation to crime prediction.


Inadequate oversight of these applications can result in serious human rights breaches and discrimination.

The AI Act aims to address these concerns by instituting measures to increase public transparency and accountability, particularly in the use of AI by law enforcement, migration, and national security authorities.

She stressed the importance of enshrining critical human rights protections in law, urging EU lawmakers to complete the act before the current EU mandate expires in 2024.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble.
