In April 2021, Equinet organized a training on AI & Equality for National Equality Bodies. The aim of the training was to share the basic technical knowledge, discuss legal and practical challenges and present some examples of current AI applications that might challenge Equality and Human Rights. An exchange of good practices among colleagues enhanced mutual learning.
On 20 July 2021 Equinet board member & Advocate of the Principle of Equality in Slovenia, Miha Lobnik participated in a conference about the ethical and fundamental rights aspects of the artificial intelligence (AI). The event raised ethical questions relating to AI and highlighted the need for a special emphasis on the protection of fundamental rights and freedoms when regulating AI.
The Commission is proposing the first ever legal framework on AI, which addresses the risks of AI and positions Europe to play a leading role globally.
The proposal and its annexes can be found hereunder. For more information check the European Commission's website: https://digital-strategy.ec.europa.eu/en/library/proposal-regulation-european-approach-artificial-intelligence
This training is aimed at NEB staff interested in AI. There is neither a technical nor a legal prerequisite needed to participate. The aim of the training will be to share the basic technical knowledge, discuss the legal and practical challenges (22/04) and present some examples of current AI applications that might challenge Equality and Human Rights (30/04). An exchange of good practices among colleagues should enhance mutual learning.
