Ministry of Justice held a virtual conference on the regulation of artificial intelligence, ethics and fundamental rights
The discussion in the first panel was led by Dr Maja Bogataj Jančič, who is co-chair of the Data Governance Working Group at the Global Partnership for Artificial Intelligence (GPAI). The second panel was chaired by Gregor Strojin, Chair of the Council of Europe’s Ad hoc Committee on Artificial Intelligence (CAHAI). The speakers focused mainly on the proposal for the Artificial Intelligence Act. In addition to the regulatory activities currently underway at the Council of Europe and the EU, the OECD and UNESCO also presented their activities.
The first panel discussed the proposal for the Artificial Intelligence Act, which will constitute the future legal framework for the development and use of artificial intelligence in the EU. The proposal was discussed primarily from the perspective of the need to protect the fundamental rights and freedoms when it comes to the development and use of artificial intelligence systems. The second panel offered a broader, international perspective with the aim of comparing the approaches of different regional and international organisations and fostering their cooperation in this field.
