6. Regulation of artificial intelligence

Note: The following is a summary of recent relevant EuroDIG session outcomes and messages on which you may wish to comment. Additional proposals for core principles and commitments for action relating to this thematic area are also invited in this consultation.

Core Principles

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 1 The potential risks relating to AI need to be examined holistically, and humans should ultimately remain in command and be responsible for AI deployment and applications.

Commitments to action

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 In addition to reaching agreement on certain global principles, values and possible rights to guide AI development, such as prevention of discrimination, data protection and data governance, trust, protection of privacy, transparency, and human-centred AI, there is also a need to allow regions and states to adapt these principles to their own situations through concrete instruments targeted at policymakers and other actors.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 In this process, the multi-stakeholder approach and cross-regional dialogue are key for ensuring harmonisation. The current escalating geopolitical tensions, however, are challenging multi-stakeholderism and cross-regional dialogue. There is accordingly a need to take a fresh look at them.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 1 Investment in educational programmes and raising awareness is needed to help users understand AI technologies, their benefits as well as their risks.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 1 Current ongoing regional and global initiatives in this direction should be supported.
