On 8 April 2019 the EU’s High-Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence (“AI”) published its guidelines on the ethical use of AI. The Guidelines include non-binding principles for the ethical development and implementation of AI systems in Europe.
A joint statement was issued by Andrus Ansip (EC Vice-President), Dimitrisz Avramopulosz, Julian King and Mariya Gabriel (EU Commissioners) on the first EU-wide legislation on cybersecurity, i.e. the Directive on Security of Network and Information Systems (NIS Directive) that Member States had to implement into national law by 9 May 2018. The aim of the NIS Directive and the efforts in the field of the cybersecurity is to ensure that products and services in the digital world are safe to use.
