Tobias Holzmüller on the political agreement in the Trilogue negotiations on the AI Act

During the Trilogue negotiations on the European AI Act, the EU Council, Commission and Parliament were able to agree on important principles regarding the transparency obligations for AI providers. Tobias Holzmüller, GEMA CEO, comments on the results of the negotiations as follows:

“We welcome the progress made during the negotiations on the AI Act. Those intending to offer generative AI in Europe must be able to explain what contents they used to train it. The results we now have on the table are a step in the right direction, but need to be sharpened further on a technical level. The outcome must be a clearly formulated transparency regime that obliges AI providers to submit detailed evidence on the contents they used to train their systems, just like other major legal systems such as the US managed to implement. GEMA is going to continue to work towards this.”
