Resolution discussed and adopted by the European Parliament in 2017 on civil law rules relating to robotics and artificial intelligence.
This initiative urges the European Union to set out a legal framework regulating the field of robotics and artificial intelligence (AI), highlighting that a common set of rules was needed in order to fully exploit its economic potential and guarantee a standard level of safety and security. The Resolution also calls on the European Commission to consider the creation of a European agency for robotics and artificial intelligence, aimed at supplying public authorities with technical, ethical and regulatory expertise. Its rapporteur proposes a voluntary ethical code of conduct to regulate who would be accountable for the social, environmental and human health impacts of robotics and ensure that they operate in accordance with legal, safety and ethical standards.
The Parliament's legal affairs committee approved the report on 12 January 2017, which was later endorsed by the plenary session on 16 February.
