#TheFutureIsYours Shaping Europe’s digital future
Towards an Ethical AI: promote debate and avoid inequalities
The European Commission and Parliament are actively pursuing an EU’s value-based approach to AI ensuring that technology put on the market is “human-centric, sustainable, secure, inclusive, accessible and trustworthy” by promoting regulations, research fundings, capacity building and advanced digital skills. However, predicting the impact of future developments of AI on the overall society is difficult, thus it is difficult to regulate it: AI will impact not only on the economy, but also on the fabric of society itself and on the relationships among citizens. It is necessary to parallel legislation containing the risks of AI and regulating the use of data with the creation of a widespread awareness by citizens of the opportunities and challenges of AI to ensure the uptake of such legislations. It is necessary to avoid the rising inequalities in the society and restore social cohesion, whose disruption cannot be solved only by regulating the digital world.
