Digital Services Act: Improving the functioning of the Single Market - Digital Services Act: adapting commercial and civil law rules for commercial entities operating online - Digital Services Act and fundamental rights issues posed - Framework of ethical aspects of artificial intelligence, robotics and related technologies - Civil liability regime for artificial intelligence - Intellectual property rights for the development of artificial intelligence technologies (continuation of debate)

  Kris Peeters, rapporteur. – Mr President, first of all, I would like to thank you for this debate. The core ideas for the Digital Services Act (DSA) are clear. The DSA must improve the framework for digital service providers to stimulate growth, but it must also make the fight against illegal content more successful and it must improve transparency and oversight.

Our core idea for digital intelligence should be clear as well. Either we develop AI based on our own values and with economic benefits or we end up using AI developed on other continents without those values and without a large part of the economic benefits. A strong risk—based approach offers the best way forward here.

These challenges are difficult, but I fully support the efforts of all the rapporteurs here today. We are not even close to a satisfying legal situation, but these reports are an excellent start. Madam Commissioner, listening to your reaction, I am very positive about the proposals that you will make and we can discuss very soon.
