The European parliament has voted by a large majority in favor of adopting a wide-ranging proposed law on AI.
On May 11, 2023, the lawmakers adopted a draft negotiating mandate with 84 votes in favor, 7 against, and 12 abstentions.
The proposed law is the first relating to AI by a major regulator, according to the AI Act website. It aims to regulate the advanced technology and protect Europeans from its potential risks.
The next step for the Act is plenary adoption, which is expected during the 12-15 June session.
