The Ukrainian Ministry of Digital Transformation unveiled its artificial intelligence (AI) regulatory road map on October 7. The roadmap, which was made public on the ministry’s website, intends to help local firms get ready for the passage of a law similar to the EU’s AI Act and to inform residents about how to protect themselves from potential AI hazards.
The roadmap advocates a step-by-step movement from less to more and is built on a bottom-up methodology. Before any legislation are put into effect, it also plans on giving businesses the resources they need to prepare for upcoming legislative needs.
An initial phase of roughly two to three years has been planned for the roadmap to aid firms in adjusting to potential laws. Oleksandr Borniakov, deputy minister of digital transformation, said, “We intend to build a culture of business self-regulation in different ways. “In particular, by voluntarily signing codes of conduct that attest to businesses’ moral use of AI. A White Paper is another instrument that will help businesses understand the strategy, timeline, and phases of regulation implementation.
To take into account the provisions of the EU AI Act, the roadmap states that the draught national AI legislation should be ready no sooner than 2024.
The EU AI Act will restrict some forms of artificial intelligence services and products while outlawing others once it is put into effect. Biometric monitoring, social scoring systems, predictive policing, “emotion recognition,” and indiscriminate facial recognition systems are some of the technologies that may be outright banned. The use of generative AI models, such as Google’s Bard and OpenAI’s ChatGPT, would be allowed as long as their outputs are clearly marked as artificial intelligence-generated.
