The second plenary meeting of the Ad Hoc Committee on Artificial Intelligence (CAHAI) will be held from 6 to 8 July 2020, bringing together representatives of the 47 Council of Europe member states, observer states (Canada, Holy See, Israel, Japan, Mexico, USA) as well as civil society, academia and the Council of Europe's Internet partners.
The CAHAI observer group is expanding with the participation for the first time of Israel and 12 new stakeholders. Other international organisations (EU, OECD, UNESCO) will also contribute to CAHAI’s work.
CAHAI members will make concrete proposals on the feasibility study of a future legal framework on artificial intelligence (AI) based on human rights, democracy and the rule of law. In this connection, they will address issues such as the mapping of legal instruments applicable to AI and the opportunities and risks arising from the design, development and application of AI on human rights, rule of law and democracy, which have already been subject of a preliminary analysis.
Other issues such the scope and main elements of the above-mentioned legal framework will also be discussed.
This will provide the necessary impetus for the preparation of the first draft of the feasibility study, which will be presented at the CAHAI plenary meeting in December 2020.
