Artificial Intelligence and Civil Liability

14-07-2020

This study – commissioned by the Policy Department C at the request of the Committee on Legal Affairs – analyses the notion of AI-technologies and the applicable legal framework for civil liability. It demonstrates how technology regulation should be technology-specific, and presents a Risk Management Approach, where the party who is best capable of controlling and managing a technology-related risk is held strictly liable, as a single entry point for litigation. It then applies such approach to ...

This study – commissioned by the Policy Department C at the request of the Committee on Legal Affairs – analyses the notion of AI-technologies and the applicable legal framework for civil liability. It demonstrates how technology regulation should be technology-specific, and presents a Risk Management Approach, where the party who is best capable of controlling and managing a technology-related risk is held strictly liable, as a single entry point for litigation. It then applies such approach to four case-studies, to elaborate recommendations.

03-07-2020

Insects, while commonly consumed elsewhere in the world, have long been off the menu in Europe – but they could soon be creeping their way onto our plates. Entomophagy, the practice of eating insects, is now gaining serious interest – is it set to take Europe by swarm?

Digital sovereignty for Europe

There is growing concern that the citizens, businesses and Member States of the European Union (EU) are gradually losing control over their data, over their capacity for innovation, and over their ability to shape and enforce legislation in the digital environment. Against this background, support has been growing for a new policy approach designed to enhance Europe's strategic autonomy in the digital field. This would require the Union to update and adapt a number of its current legal, regulatory ...

There is growing concern that the citizens, businesses and Member States of the European Union (EU) are gradually losing control over their data, over their capacity for innovation, and over their ability to shape and enforce legislation in the digital environment. Against this background, support has been growing for a new policy approach designed to enhance Europe's strategic autonomy in the digital field. This would require the Union to update and adapt a number of its current legal, regulatory and financial instruments, and to promote more actively European values and principles in areas such as data protection, cybersecurity and ethically designed artificial intelligence (AI). This paper explains the context of the emerging quest for 'digital sovereignty', which the coronavirus pandemic now seems to have accelerated, and provides an overview of the measures currently being discussed and/or proposed to enhance European autonomy in the digital field.

Es wird erwartet, dass die Europäische Union die Haftungsregelung für Online-Vermittler im kommenden Gesetz über digitale Dienste überarbeiten wird. Diese Publikation beschreibt die derzeitige Haftungsregelung, die in der Richtlinie über den elektronischen Geschäftsverkehr aus dem Jahr 2000 festgelegt wurde, hebt die festgestellten Umsetzungslücken hervor und stellt die wichtigsten Reformvorschläge vor, die bisher diskutiert wurden. Die Technologie hat sich in den letzten 20 Jahren weiterentwickelt, und es sind neue gesellschaftliche Herausforderungen entstanden, wie z. B. die zunehmende Nutzung von Plattformen für den Zugang zu und die Verbreitung von Produkten, Dienstleistungen und Informationen. Infolgedessen werden sich die politischen Entscheidungsträger mit einer Reihe von Fragen befassen müssen, einschließlich der Ausweitung des Anwendungsbereichs der Haftungsregelung und der Überarbeitung der Haftungsausschlussbedingungen.
