Summary of the AI Act approved by the European Parliament today. As mentioned previously, it is a risk-based approach, categorizing AI by the potential for harm, and limiting use accordingly. For educators, there are some implications: "banning biometric categorisation systems based on sensitive characteristics and untargeted scraping of facial images from the internet or CCTV footage to create facial recognition databases... also prohibited will be the use of emotion recognition technologies in the workplace and schools, as well as social scoring and certain kinds of predictive policing based on profiling individuals."
