Paper – A Feminist Vision For The AI EU Act – by Alexandra Wudel

The Power of AI

How AI regulation must be addressed

Old, white, western men still dominate politics and the theory and practice of digital policy and AI. As a result, the needs of women and minorities are permanently ignored. Our policy paper addresses the need for justics in AI regulation.

  • “Diese Frau macht KI feministisch” 🚀✨

2016 wurde Donald Trump mit zielgerichteten, datenbasierten Kampagnen zum US-Präsidenten gewählt. Für mich war das ein Weckruf. 
Danach habe ich begonnen mich politisch zu engagieren, arbeite seit 2021 für @emiliafester im Bundestag und habe vor etwas über einem Jahr @femai_centerfeministai gegründet. 

Acht Jahre ist die Wahl Trumps her und wieder stehen wir vor der Gefahr, dass er nochmal Präsident der USA werden könnte. 

War also alles umsonst? 

Nein, ganz im Gegenteil. Was damals mein Weckruf war, ist heute meine Motivation mich noch stärker für gute ethische KI einzusetzen. 

Warum wir feministische KI brauchen, auch abseits der Politik, und warum es nicht nur Nachteile bringt, unterschätzt zu werden - darüber spreche ich in meinem Interview in der aktuellen Cosmopolitan! 

#SupportHer #FemAI

Den Link findet ihr in meinem Linktree. 

Ich bin wahnsinnig stolz auf das Interview, vor allem aber auch auf mein Team und FemAI. Gemeinsam arbeiten wir weiter an unser Vision, dass mehr Menschen vom digitalen Fortschritt profitieren und dass KI inklusiv gestaltet wird. 

Happy Reading und ich freue mich auf eure Gedanken dazu! 

I can’t believe it: OMG, ich bin in der Cosmopolitan 😱😍
  • US - Lawmakers propose anti-nonconsensual Al porn bill to allow people to sue over faked pornographic images of themselves, following the spread of Al-generated explicit photographs of Taylor Swift.

🇪🇺 EU - what’s up?
Although we argued that the Al Act should address the problems of non-consensual image use, the final version does not adequately protect us.

Following the news after Taylor Swifts deepfake, there are three ways to address the upcoming crisis:
Next to watermarking, protective shields, its effective regulation!

I have been speaking about this pressing concern in my feminist lectures since October 2023 and the longer I follow the news, the more I want to say again and again:
We must act before the elections begin!

With @femai_centerfeministai / Center for Feminist Artificial Intelligence we developed a short policy brief addressing ways to regulate deepfakes while putting an eye on the responsibility of the private sector.

This is a shout out: we are here to collaborate! 💟

  • Status update on the EU AI Act from a feminist perspective

1️⃣ Timeline - do we move fast enough?

The EU’s negotiations on the AI Act have been completed and the responsible ministries now have the task of quickly examining the 892 pages. Final votes by member states are expected to be taken next week and not all trilogue agreements may be adopted unanimously.

The text has now arrived in the capitals of EU member states, where experts have begun the urgent task of analyzing the 892 pages to identify any last-minute changes. According to information from Tagesspiegel Background, the final vote by the member states should take place by the end of next week. The regulation is scheduled to be finalized by the EU Parliament in April following a committee meeting in mid-February.

2️⃣ Foundation models - are they regulated sufficiently?

The need for strict regulation, as demanded by Parliament, can be highlighted.
The importance of achieving consistent implementation standards across Europe is emphasized. 
⏬ This is why we started to consider how civil society can have a say in the EU AI Standardisation debate. 

3️⃣ Big disappointment (?) with the handling of biometric data

The handling of biometric remote identification remains largely unchanged from the version dated December 21st. Remote biometric identification is generally considered permissible as high-risk AI, with exceptions in favor of security authorities that may allow real-time monitoring. 
⏬ This is too vage! 
In order to assess the effectiveness of the regulation in protecting fundamental rights, a detailed analysis is required. With FemAI - Center for Feminist Artificial Intelligence, we have advocated for strict regulation of biometric identification.

4️⃣ List of high risk AI
Brussels insiders believe there have been further shifts between the banned and high-risk lists. A thorough analysis of the final text is still pending and questions remain about the impact on open source. 
⏬ We are following the news from an intersectional perspective with great concern and put a priority on the need of open source.

➡ Foundational Models nicht zu regulieren ist wie ein fehlendes soziale Gesundheitssystem. Nur privilegierte Menschen profitieren.

➡ Alle im Zirkuszelt vom EU AI Act.

➡ Der Unterschied zwischen Selbst-Regulierung und Nicht-Regulierung ____ (this is an open question exercise)

➡ Gesichtserekennungssoftware ist Snake Oil für unsere Gesellschaft.

➡ Regulierung ist gut, wenn sie funktioniert. Technologie ebenso.

“Diese Frau macht KI feministisch” 🚀✨

2016 wurde Donald Trump mit zielgerichteten, datenbasierten Kampagnen zum US-Präsidenten gewählt. Für mich war das ein Weckruf. 
Danach habe ich begonnen mich politisch zu engagieren, arbeite seit 2021 für @emiliafester im Bundestag und habe vor etwas über einem Jahr @femai_centerfeministai gegründet. 

Acht Jahre ist die Wahl Trumps her und wieder stehen wir vor der Gefahr, dass er nochmal Präsident der USA werden könnte. 

War also alles umsonst? 

Nein, ganz im Gegenteil. Was damals mein Weckruf war, ist heute meine Motivation mich noch stärker für gute ethische KI einzusetzen. 

Warum wir feministische KI brauchen, auch abseits der Politik, und warum es nicht nur Nachteile bringt, unterschätzt zu werden - darüber spreche ich in meinem Interview in der aktuellen Cosmopolitan! 

#SupportHer #FemAI

Den Link findet ihr in meinem Linktree. 

Ich bin wahnsinnig stolz auf das Interview, vor allem aber auch auf mein Team und FemAI. Gemeinsam arbeiten wir weiter an unser Vision, dass mehr Menschen vom digitalen Fortschritt profitieren und dass KI inklusiv gestaltet wird. 

Happy Reading und ich freue mich auf eure Gedanken dazu! 

I can’t believe it: OMG, ich bin in der Cosmopolitan 😱😍

Status update on the EU AI Act from a feminist perspective

1️⃣ Timeline - do we move fast enough?

The EU’s negotiations on the AI Act have been completed and the responsible ministries now have the task of quickly examining the 892 pages. Final votes by member states are expected to be taken next week and not all trilogue agreements may be adopted unanimously.

The text has now arrived in the capitals of EU member states, where experts have begun the urgent task of analyzing the 892 pages to identify any last-minute changes. According to information from Tagesspiegel Background, the final vote by the member states should take place by the end of next week. The regulation is scheduled to be finalized by the EU Parliament in April following a committee meeting in mid-February.

2️⃣ Foundation models - are they regulated sufficiently?

The need for strict regulation, as demanded by Parliament, can be highlighted.
The importance of achieving consistent implementation standards across Europe is emphasized. 
⏬ This is why we started to consider how civil society can have a say in the EU AI Standardisation debate. 

3️⃣ Big disappointment (?) with the handling of biometric data

The handling of biometric remote identification remains largely unchanged from the version dated December 21st. Remote biometric identification is generally considered permissible as high-risk AI, with exceptions in favor of security authorities that may allow real-time monitoring. 
⏬ This is too vage! 
In order to assess the effectiveness of the regulation in protecting fundamental rights, a detailed analysis is required. With FemAI - Center for Feminist Artificial Intelligence, we have advocated for strict regulation of biometric identification.

4️⃣ List of high risk AI
Brussels insiders believe there have been further shifts between the banned and high-risk lists. A thorough analysis of the final text is still pending and questions remain about the impact on open source. 
⏬ We are following the news from an intersectional perspective with great concern and put a priority on the need of open source.
