Session description

With the emergence of new tools that employ artificial intelligence (AI) and Big Data, we are witnessing another technological revolution. Progress and innovation have always been driving factors for societies and the way we live, yet, these new technologies stand out as a game changer with the potential of affecting the core of our societies. While their benefits may be manifold, they raise complex and urgent legal, ethical, policy and economic questions with thus far uncertain implications. Clearly, however, their impact on peoples’ enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms and on the functioning of democratic institutions and processes is significant. As a result, they require careful analysis and decisive action.

Whilst measures aimed at creating the right conditions in which these technologies could thrive are multiplying, the transition from principles to practice remains one of the key issues driving the debates.
