I seminari sono organizzati dai dipartimenti tematici e consentono ai deputati di porre domande ad esperti e tenere scambi di opinioni con essi su argomenti correlati alle attività parlamentari o di attualità. Non sono necessariamente pubblici, ma possono svolgersi nel corso di una riunione di commissione.

17-10-2016 - JURI Workshop on Robotics and Artificial Intelligence

JURI 06-12-2016 - 11:04

At the request of the Committee on Legal Affairs, the Policy Department organised a workshop on “Robotics and artificial intelligence - ethical issues and regulatory approach”, on 17 October at 15.00, with the participation of Members of national Parliaments.

Artificial intelligence (AI) raises a number of ethical and political challenges for the present and near future, with driverless cars and search engines in the news. Potential issues range from job disruption to privacy violations. Over a longer term, if AI becomes as or more intelligent than humans, other governance issues such as safety and control may increase in importance. What policy approaches make sense across different issues and timeframes?

The first part of the workshop focused on basic ethical and policy questions raised by the development of robotics and AI, on the basis of presentations by experts. This was followed by a discussion with national parliamentarians on what the legislator should do and at which level, with the European Parliament's draft legislative initiative report on "Civil Law Rules on Robotics" as a basis.
