CAHAI International Panel on Service Robotics

The digitalisation of our lives brings challenges and opportunities. One of the aspects of such digitalisation is the use of artificial intelligence systems, and in particular – intelligent service robots, which sometimes augment or replace us in interactions with other humans.

In certain contexts, the use of such robots may pose questions which are relevant from the human rights' perspective. When can their use foster or hamper human dignity and the right to privacy? How can their use affect other fundamental rights?

Renowned experts have been invited by the Council of Europe to discuss the interplay between human rights and the use of service robots in the webinar format.

The event will take place on 5 July 2021, between 1 pm and 2 pm CEST, on the sidelines of the 5th plenary meeting of the Council’s Ad-Hoc Committee on Artificial Intelligence (CAHAI), which is currently examining the feasibility and potential elements of a legal framework for the development, design and application of artificial intelligence systems.

The webinar will be accessible via this link. No prior registration is required. The working language will be in English only. Concept note.
