Mapping Regulatory Proposals for Artificial Intelligence in Europe

Published: November 2018

This 2018 report by Access Now outlines major regulatory initiatives related to artificial intelligence and mass data regulations in the EU and member states.

It draws on state bodies’ published strategy papers and AI analyses, as well as states’ consultations with experts who are helping develop regulation or assessing whether existing laws are fit for purpose. The report also canvasses differences between regulatory strategies and identifies possible risks and opportunities for human rights, transparency, and accountability.

The aim of the report is to help everyone with a stake in AI — including civil society, unions, consumer groups, representatives of the private sector and legislators — participate in the development of this vital technology.
