The European Union’s top AI experts presented last June a list of 33 recommendations on how to boost a European AI industry. They advise against a one-size-fits-all approach for AI regulation, but call for a review of the bloc’s existing rules, as well as for defining “red lines” and discussing the potential ban of high-risk AI applications “with affected stakeholders.”

These recommendations, together with the European Commission’s AI ethics guidelines published in April, will impact AI regulations for the years to come. Still, the EU is asking companies, public institutions and researchers for feedback.
