SIENNA submits response the public consultation on the European Commission White Paper on AI


On 13 June 2020, SIENNA project submitted its response to the European Commission public consultation on the White Paper on AI. Our key recommendation was to change the focus of the proposed regulatory framework. Instead of aiming at building consumers’ and businesses’ trust in AI in order to speed up the uptake of the technology, the objectives of the framework should be driven by fundamental rights and societal values.

We also called for, among others, enhancing protection of vulnerable groups and individuals vis-à-vis AI adverse impacts, setting more definitive red lines on what is not permissible, adding the requirements of Human Rights Impact Assessment and promoting the ethics by design approach.

We invite to you see our responses to the consultation survey and our submission with recommendations.
