On 7 December 2021, a Project Action in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Personal Data Protection was launched to build the capacity of the State Inspector’s Service (Georgian Data Protection Authority) in the field of Artificial Intelligence. It will involve research, training and policy development. As a result of the series of activities, the State Inspector’s Service of Georgia will have improved skills and knowledge to monitor Artificial Intelligence tools in respect of personal data protection.
The Project Action is motivated by the increased use of Artificial Intelligence tools in the country by various private and public organisations and the subsequent need to ensure protection of privacy and personal data while using these tools. The event was held online and gathered up to 50 representatives of public, private, academic, international and civil society organisations.
It takes place in the framework of the Council of Europe Project “Strengthening Media Freedom, Internet Governance and Personal Data Protection” SMIP-GE.
