In today's rapidly advancing field of artificial intelligence technology, ensuring its safe and compliant service to human society has become a global focal point. The European Union has taken a significant step in this area by establishing a dedicated artificial intelligence office to regulate AI technology and promote its healthy and orderly development.

Establishment of the European Union Artificial Intelligence Office

On May 29, 2024, the European Union announced the establishment of the Artificial Intelligence Office, aimed at regulating artificial intelligence, supporting the development and use of trustworthy AI, and preventing the risks brought by artificial intelligence. This move signifies the European Union's foresight and determination in the field of AI regulation.

Office Composition and Structure

The office consists of 140 members, including multidisciplinary professionals such as technical experts, lawyers, and economists. It has a Chief Scientific Advisor and an International Affairs Advisor to ensure scientific decision-making and an international perspective. The office is divided into five departments, responsible for:

  1. Regulation and Compliance of AI and Robotics
  2. AI Innovation and Policy Coordination
  3. AI Safety
  4. AI Social Welfare

The establishment of the European Union office will play a key role in the implementation of the Artificial Intelligence Act. This act is the world's first comprehensive regulation of artificial intelligence, proposing a classification of artificial intelligence risk levels, and implementing different levels of regulation based on the potential threats that technological applications may pose to society.

Highlights of the Artificial Intelligence Act

  • Comprehensive Regulation: The act comprehensively regulates artificial intelligence technology to ensure that technological development does not deviate from ethical and legal norms.
  • Risk Level Classification: Based on the different applications of artificial intelligence technology, it is divided into different risk levels and corresponding regulatory measures are implemented.
  • Prohibition of Unacceptable Risks: For artificial intelligence applications deemed to have an "unacceptable" level of risk, the law explicitly prohibits their use.

Outlook for the Future

The establishment of the European Union Artificial Intelligence Office not only provides a solid foundation for the regulation of AI technology but also offers a reference for the formulation of global AI ethics and legal standards. As artificial intelligence technology continues to advance, ensuring the safety and ethics of human society while safeguarding technological development will be a challenge we must face.


In the wave of artificial intelligence, this move by the European Union undoubtedly sets an example for the world. We look forward to finding the best solution in the balance between technology and ethics, making artificial intelligence truly a force that drives human progress.
