AI journalism has a hype problem. To move past the cycle of reacting to each story, @firstname.lastname@example.org and I analyzed over 50 pieces from 5 prominent outlets.

@email@example.com @POLITICOEurope@twitter.com @IoanDragosT@twitter.com Grazie @firstname.lastname@example.org finalmente in #Europa c'è più attenzione all'Italia ed alle capacità degli italiani oltre la pluri millenaria cultura la democrazia le bellezze naturali il vino il cibo e l'ospitalità. Avanti così, altre mete ed alte sfide ci attendono! Viva l'Italia!
Grazie a @POLITICOEurope@twitter.com per aver nominato me e il collega @IoanDragosT@twitter.com come i legislatori europei in assoluto più importanti in questo momento sui temi tecnologici, grazie al nostro ruolo di relatori dell’ #AI Act, il Regolamento Europeo sull’Intelligenza Artificiale. https://twitter.com/POLITICOEurope/status/1526943229370843137
#AI Act: the co-rapporteurs proposed extending the regulation's scope to certain metaverse environments. The latest CAMs also touch upon requirements for high-risk AI, such as risk management & data governance.
AI Liability Act (rec. 15): no need to cover liability claims when damage is caused by a human assessment followed by a human act or omission, while the AI system only provided information or advice which was taken into account by the relevant human actor. https://ec.europa.eu/commission/presscorner/detail/sl/ip_22_5807

We will soon publish an advertisement for a legal postdoc job (3 years), to work on European non-discrimination law and the GDPR in the context of algorithmic hiring - the use of AI in the recruitment of job candidates. Feel free to let me know already if you might be interested.

How to - seriously - assess legal technologies? Yesterday we did a sneak preview of our TYPOLOGY OF LEGAL TECHNOLOGIES @iHub_RU@twitter.com 1/ https://ihub.ru.nl/event/event.page?id=3xIpf1r8s01
La dichiarazione in cui mi assumo le responsabilità del risultato e convoco un Congresso di profonda riflessione sul futuro del Pd.
Congresso al quale non mi candiderò.
“But the Pound has stabilised on the markets today”. Desperate claims from some rightwing libertarian commentators
If interested we have an entire chapter on why words matter here (chapter 2). Most serious scholars dropped 'far right' in early 90s because it was so broad it was considered meaningless
Far right is unhelpful term, applied to fascists to conservatives. Better to distinguish between extreme right (revolutionary + reject democracy + authoritarian + biologically racist) & national populism (reactionary + direct not liberal democracy + national preference)
Where are Giorgia Meloni and Fratelli d'Italia getting their votes from?
