Artificial Intelligence Regulation Must Protect the Principles of the Rule of Law

The Estonian Human Rights Centre, together with 60 non-governmental organizations across Europe, signed an open letter calling on legislators to ensure that the artificial intelligence (AI) regulation is in compliance with the rule of law standards.

In the letter sent to European Union legislators, the organizations point out the risks associated with the deployment of AI. As artificial intelligence is increasingly used in both the private and public sectors, strong protective measures must be adopted to safeguard the foundations of the European Union. Misuse of artificial intelligence – including the opaque and irresponsible implementation of AI systems by public authorities – poses a serious threat to the rule of law and democracy.
