Making Artificial Intelligence ethical, safe and innovative

#artificialintelligence

This article is brought to you in association with the European Parliament. MEPs approved proposals to address long-term opportunities and legal challenges posed by AI in the area of ethics, civil liability and intellectual property. The Legal Affairs Committee adopted three reports on Thursday on specific issues linked to the increased development and use of artificial intelligence systems. The Commission is expected to put forward a legislative proposal on the matter in early 2021. The legislative initiative by Iban García del Blanco (S&D, ES), adopted with 20 votes in favour, none against and 4 abstentions, urges the EU Commission to present a new legal framework outlining the ethical principles to be used when developing, deploying and using artificial intelligence, robotics and related technologies in the EU, including software, algorithms and data.

The Legal Affairs Committee adopted three reports on Thursday on specific issues linked to the increased development and use of artificial intelligence systems. The Commission is expected to put forward a legislative proposal on the matter in early 2021. The legislative initiative by Iban García del Blanco (S&D, ES), adopted with 20 votes in favour, none against and 4 abstentions, urges the EU Commission to present a new legal framework outlining the ethical principles to be used when developing, deploying and using artificial intelligence, robotics and related technologies in the EU, including software, algorithms and data. MEPs adopted proposals on several guiding principles that must be taken into account by future laws including a human-centric, human-made and human-controlled AI; safety, transparency and accountability; safeguards against bias and discrimination; right to redress; social and environmental responsibility, and respect for fundamental rights. When it comes to AI with machine-learning (self-improving) capacities, it should be designed to allow for human oversight.


COPYRIGHT AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE - Law Insider

#artificialintelligence

Such work may be protected once the creation becomes an expression of the author and not merely an idea. It refers to the right to enjoy the subject matter and use the same for economic purposes. On the other hand, the artworks based on Artificial Intelligence are relied heavily on the programmer who gives the input for creation of the work. However, with technological advancement, AI has developed a capability of understanding and creating outputs without any human interference.[7] The main issue raised, is regarding the protection of work created by AI.


Collecting the Public Perception of AI and Robot Rights

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Whether to give rights to artificial intelligence (AI) and robots has been a sensitive topic since the European Parliament proposed advanced robots could be granted "electronic personalities." Numerous scholars who favor or disfavor its feasibility have participated in the debate. This paper presents an experiment (N=1270) that 1) collects online users' first impressions of 11 possible rights that could be granted to autonomous electronic agents of the future and 2) examines whether debunking common misconceptions on the proposal modifies one's stance toward the issue. The results indicate that even though online users mainly disfavor AI and robot rights, they are supportive of protecting electronic agents from cruelty (i.e., favor the right against cruel treatment). Furthermore, people's perceptions became more positive when given information about rights-bearing non-human entities or myth-refuting statements. The style used to introduce AI and robot rights significantly affected how the participants perceived the proposal, similar to the way metaphors function in creating laws. For robustness, we repeated the experiment over a more representative sample of U.S. residents (N=164) and found that perceptions gathered from online users and those by the general population are similar.


Europe and AI: Leading, Lagging Behind, or Carving Its Own Way?

#artificialintelligence

For its AI ecosystem to thrive, Europe needs to find a way to protect its research base, encourage governments to be early adopters, foster its startup ecosystem, expand international links, and develop AI technologies as well as leverage their use efficiently.


Imposing Regulation on Advanced Algorithms

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

This book discusses the necessity and perhaps urgency for the regulation of algorithms on which new technologies rely; technologies that have the potential to re-shape human societies. From commerce and farming to medical care and education, it is difficult to find any aspect of our lives that will not be affected by these emerging technologies. At the same time, artificial intelligence, deep learning, machine learning, cognitive computing, blockchain, virtual reality and augmented reality, belong to the fields most likely to affect law and, in particular, administrative law. The book examines universally applicable patterns in administrative decisions and judicial rulings. First, similarities and divergence in behavior among the different cases are identified by analyzing parameters ranging from geographical location and administrative decisions to judicial reasoning and legal basis. As it turns out, in several of the cases presented, sources of general law, such as competition or labor law, are invoked as a legal basis, due to the lack of current specialized legislation. This book also investigates the role and significance of national and indeed supranational regulatory bodies for advanced algorithms and considers ENISA, an EU agency that focuses on network and information security, as an interesting candidate for a European regulator of advanced algorithms. Lastly, it discusses the involvement of representative institutions in algorithmic regulation.


This Is The Year Of AI Regulations

#artificialintelligence

The world of artificial intelligence is constantly evolving, and certainly so is the legal and regulatory environment in which it exists. Michael Hayes, Senior Manager of Government Affairs at the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) is focused on these emerging technology challenges that hit up against existing laws and regulations. Michael previously worked on Capitol Hill on patent reform, stopping patent trolls. As part of his current role, Michael makes sure that the emerging policy discussion is framed in a way that makes sure that the technology can thrive and provide competitive advantages for companies implementing them without introducing new risks. There has been a lot of concern about corporation and government's use of data, and the role of privacy.


AI Will Transform The Field Of Law

#artificialintelligence

The field of law has evolved surprisingly little since the days of Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. ... [ ] (1841-1935), considered by many to be the greatest U.S. Supreme Court justice in history. Virtually everything that companies do--sales, purchases, partnerships, mergers, reorganizations--they do via legally enforceable contracts. Innovation would grind to a halt without a well-developed body of intellectual property law. Day to day, whether we recognize it or not, each of us operates against the backdrop of our legal regime and the implicit possibility of litigation. At close to $1T globally, the legal services market is one of the largest in the world.


Artificial Intelligence (AI) Industry Report Update on Impact of AI Inventions on Intellectual Property (IP) Law and Policy

#artificialintelligence

Ocean Tomo Industry Analyst Kevin Bennett reports on Federal Register Notice deadline to provide comments on the impact of AI inventions on copyright, trademark and other intellectual property rights. The update shares an announcement from the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO") and provides important details regarding a second Federal Register Notice on AI and innovation building upon the earlier request for comments focused on the impact AI poses for patent law and policy. Building upon that call comment, the current call seeks comments on the impact on copyright, trademark and other intellectual property rights issues potentially impacted by AI. The Ocean Tomo AI Report Update contains important details regarding the window of opportunity to respond to the notice as well as sample questions included in the notice.
