The Giant has woken up: the European Union’s Plans for the Future of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

In recent years, the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has progressed significantly in several sectors. Despite this development, the legal system has yet to adequately regulate this new technology. Small steps have been made in some European countries, but there is no clear, unifying regulatory approach. To that end, the European Commission in April 2018 produced a short communication outlining its intentions for the future of AI, in particular the legal and ethical concerns which necessitated the Commission’s involvement. This note presents the plans of the European Commission related to the legal aspects of AI and contrasts them with the European Parliament’s Resolution on Civil Law and Robotics.
