European Union officials unveiled proposals on Wednesday for reining in high-risk uses of artificial intelligence such as live facial scanning that could threaten people’s safety or rights. Al Jazeera reports that the draft regulations from the EU’s executive commission include rules on the use of the rapidly expanding technology in systems that filter out school, job or loan applicants. They also would ban artificial intelligence outright in a few cases considered too risky, such as “social scoring” systems that judge people based on their behaviour and physical traits.
