~Perhaps the most profound impact of Al will be the effects that artificial intelligences
will have in our understanding of ourselves. Copernicus and later astronomers moved
us from the center of the Universe to a small planet in on of countless galaxies. Darwin
and later evolutionists moved us from the center of creation to our present place
among countless DNA-based life forms. These changes of perspective were difficult for
some of us to accept. What changes await us if we are successful in building machines
as intelligent as we? M
Artificial intelligence and its effects on human society are the main topics of the
moment, while challenging both IT and legal researchers. Humanity has reached
a point where it must accept the role of artificial intelligence and assimilate it,
adapting its value system, legal framework and economy to the new reality.
In April 2021, the European Commission announced its firm intention to develop
and adopt legal measures and rules that will ,turn Europe into the global hub
for trustworthy Artificial Intelligence (Al). It is particularly important to highlight
that guaranteeing the fundamental rights of citizens is a focal point in this whole
regulatory process initiated by the European Commission in this relatively new
field for our society. We mention ,relatively new, given the fact that the issue of
artificial intelligence has appeared in the public space since the 50s, when viewers
noticed the imminence of this unprecedented technological development in human
This article highlights the risks and opportunities posed by artificial intelligence in
today's society, identifies the rights and freedoms exposed to a high degree of risk
posed by the lack of regulations in the field of Al systems and presents the solutions
identified by European Commission on this regulatory crisis.
