Enhancing EU legal frameworks for AI & robotics

Cover of SIENNA Policy Brief #1

In practice, existing EU legal frameworks like human rights, data protection, product liability and safety, are fully applicable and should be able to cope with the challenges posed by AI and robotics, and other emerging technologies. SIENNA has identified various gaps and challenges that must be addressed. In our first policy brief, we list some of the urgent actions required and make recommendations for European Union institutions.

Enhancing national legal frameworks for AI & robotics

Policy brief #3

National policy-makers should ensure that any changes in legislation responding to AI and robotics are fit for purpose and in accordance with the country’s international obligations, especially with regards to human rights and societal values. There is need for legal clarity and guidance. In this policy brief, we present some of the urgent actions required and recommendations for national policy-makers, government ministries and departments (particularly ICT), parliaments, public authorities, national human rights institutions (NHRIs), supervisory bodies, and regulators.

Ethics & human rights for new and emerging technologies

Ethics & human rights for new and emerging technologies: SIENNA project Policy Brief #4

Human genomics, human enhancement, artificial intelligence and robotics offer benefits for both individuals and society. But these technologies also challenge human rights and our notions of what is ethical. SIENNA has developed frameworks and proposals for the ethical management and legal regulation of human genetics and genomics, technologies for human enhancement, artificial intelligence and robotics.

This policy brief presents key messages drawn from the EU-funded Horizon 2020 SIENNA project (2017-2021). SIENNA seeks to promote enhanced consideration of ethical and human rights issues in new and emerging technologies with major socio-economic impact and human rights relevance.
