Law, AI and robotics: Legal analysis complete!

2019-05-07

SIENNA partners have completed their research on legal developments, issues and human rights challenges related to artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics. We have covered the legal developments on the international level and in the EU, and completed 12 country studies of the national level, looking at the relevant laws and human rights standards. 

Artificial intelligenceOur studies in Brazil, China, France, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, United Kingdom, and the US reveal how these countries have dealt with key AI & robotics issues. We looked at intellectual property issues related to works created by AI, algorithmic bias and discrimination, specific legal status for robots, robot safety and civil liability issues.

Right now, the results are with the European Commission. Going forward, the results will feed into forthcoming SIENNA work to help determine how to enhance existing legal frameworks. To identify such changes and future actions, SIENNA will engage with, and welcomes input from policy-makers, legislators, regulators and legal scholars.
