On 1st of July 2020, the Committee of Ministers decided, in line with paragraph 8 of the Resolution CM/Res(2011)24, to give Israel the observer status to the Ad hoc Committee on Artificial Intelligence (CAHAI).
Israel will, as from now, fully contribute to the work of the CAHAI. Its participation expands the reach of the CAHAI, which already includes Canada, the Holy See, Japan, Mexico and the United States of America among its observers.
The CAHAI is currently examining the feasibility of a legal framework for the development, design and application of artificial intelligence, based on the Council of Europe standards on human rights, democracy and the rule of law.
The CAHAI's work will be the result of a unique and close co-operation between numerous stakeholders from various sectors ranging from member and non-member States, but also representatives of civil society, research and academia, and the private sector.
