 Subject:  Application of artificial intelligence in Europe under the existing EU legal framework
 Answer in writing 

On 12 February 2019, Parliament adopted a resolution on a comprehensive European industrial policy on artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics. The resolution presents a human-centric approach towards developing AI technology, which upholds a guiding ethical framework of human dignity and human rights, non-discrimination, and the respect for privacy and personal data. Currently, a high-level expert group on AI that was established by the Commission is working on improving its draft ethical guidelines for the technology.

1. Does the existing EU legal framework ensure the effective functioning of AI in Europe and guarantee that there are no unnecessary legal challenges?

2. Network operations are not included in the four use cases which the high-level expert group intends to develop in the final version of the guidelines, Nevertheless, network security and predictive maintenance of networks are crucial when dealing with AI. Will the Commission therefore analyse the impact of AI on network operations in a separate document?
