The Council of Europe Committee of experts on human rights dimensions of automated data processing and different forms of artificial intelligence will have its first meeting on 6–7 March 2018, in Strasbourg, France.
The committee was established by the Council of Europe's Committee of Ministers, with the aim to prepare follow up with a view to the preparation of a possible standard setting instrument on the basis of the study on the human rights dimensions of automated data processing techniques (in particular algorithms and possible regulatory implications); carry out a study on the development and use of new digital technologies and services, including different forms of artificial intelligence, as they may impact peoples’ enjoyment of fundamental rights and freedoms in the digital age – with a view to give guidance for future standard-setting in this field; and carry out a study on a possible standard-setting instrument on forms of liability and jurisdictional issues in the application of civil and administra defamation laws in Council of Europe member states.
The March meeting will feature debates on the main issues of concern that should be addressed in the text that is expected to be delivered during the committee's mandate. Members will also discuss the roadmap for the Committee's work in 2018 and 2019.
