European Parliament, STOA – Generative AI: opportunities, risks and challenges

Tuesday, 7 November, 2023
European Parliament

Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a branch of AI that focuses on the development of algorithms capable of generating original and creative outputs, such as texts, images, music, and more. One of the most prominent examples of generative AI is Large Language Models (LLMs), which have been at the forefront of recent breakthroughs in AI research. Large Language Models, such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT, are built using deep learning techniques and trained on massive datasets containing vast amounts of text from diverse sources. LLMs have demonstrated impressive capabilities in various applications, such as natural language understanding, question answering, content generation and translation. While these technologies are expected to bring huge benefits in the coming years, spurring innovation in many sectors such as industry and education, their disruptive nature raises questions among general users, NGOs and policymakers around privacy and intellectual property rights, liability and accountability, and concerns about their potential to spread disinformation and misinformation. EU lawmakers need to strike a delicate balance between fostering the deployment of these technologies while making sure adequate safeguards are in place.
