Tech champion Constantijn decries Dutch regulatory push around AI

As a result, they have already made further progress in the field of AI, says a special envoy at the technology conference The Next Web.

“For example, our State Secretary Alexandra van Haflen (Digitalization) was only negative about AI before,” says Constantijn. “You can regulate the technology here, but it excludes the Netherlands, and then you have no control. We find it strange that with this policy, the US has all the major platforms,” ​​Prince says. For comedy. “We’re talking about the risk side of AI here.”

Constantijn did not comment further on the European legislation announced to regulate ChatGPT and other forms of AI. Van Haflen said in a response on Wednesday that the European Parliament was the first in the world to adopt rules to regulate AI, for example in the field of privacy, which is “proud”.


The US and the UK may be technologically ahead, but Constantijn sees some countries in the European Union, such as Estonia and Sweden, also succeeding. According to him, the Netherlands is not doing badly, but start-ups here rarely grow into big companies.

Constantijn sees a prime minister in the United Kingdom, for example, who engages in discussions about technology. “It’s very important. That’s the world citizens and companies live in. Our government is still not good enough. It’s not easy either, look at the profile of our politicians. Very few people really know about AI. In the UK, the technology is already very embedded.”
