Germany, France and Italy have reached an agreement on how artificial intelligence should be regulated in the future, according to a joint document seen by Reuters that is expected to speed up negotiations at the European level.
The document states that rules of conduct and transparency should be binding on everyone and that no sanctions should be introduced at the outset.
The three governments are pushing for binding voluntary consents for both large and small AI service providers in the EU.
The European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of the EU are currently negotiating how the bloc should position itself in this new field.
In June, Parliament introduced the Law on Artificial Intelligence with the aim of avoiding security risks from AI applications and discriminatory effects, but without slowing down the innovative power of new technology in Europe.
During the discussions, the European Parliament proposed that the code of conduct should initially be binding only on the main suppliers of artificial intelligence, which are primarily from the US.
However, three EU governments have warned of a clear competitive advantage for smaller European suppliers.
This could lead to less confidence in the security of smaller providers, and therefore to fewer customers, the government said.
