“I don’t see any scenario in which it would disappear,” he said of EP insertion into the text on the Foundation Model, adding that the question the Trilogy will address is not so much whether to target obligations on such models. Or not, but rather how to define the model.
“So if I make predictions about the direction of travel in relation to these basic models it is likely that there will be further refinement of what actually falls under this provision,” he said.
Any definition negotiated would include models like ChatGPT, “because it’s at the top of the food chain in terms of how powerful it is,” Tudorche said.
He acknowledged that “the nomenclature around foundation models is fluid and has evolved to include smaller foundation models”, adding: “We need to find technical criteria that accurately classify a foundation model.” That should fall within the scope, and we’re working hard.” Determine these.”
