Description

Issued EDPS opinion on Council of Europe AI Convention

On 13 October 2022, the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) issued an opinion on the Council of Europe's Convention on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the European Commission's proposal to negotiate on behalf of the European Union on the treaty. The Convention, according to the opinion, would outline the AI's risks that should be addressed in order to uphold the individuals' right to privacy. The Convention aims to create the first legally binding treaty focused on regulating AI. The EDPS stated that the AI system should be transparent, easily understandable, have a clear reporting structure, and have a regular auditing schedule. Furthermore, the EDPS noted that any AI systems that create social or ethnic rankings, allow face recognition in public spaces or categories based on a person's emotions should be prohibited.
