The members of our team support artificial intelligence players (AI departments, technology companies, AI solution providers and publishers, data players, educational establishments, research laboratories, creators…) as well as all public and private entities, across all sectors, in implementing their projects to integrate AI into their business strategy.
Today, AI is everywhere, and its day-to-day benefits no longer need to be demonstrated: prediction, guidance, recommendation, diagnostics, security, access to education and training, advances in health and medicine, task automation, productivity gains…
On the other hand, the emergence of algorithmic technologies is accompanied by growing concerns about their possible undesirable effects for individuals: transparency, traceability, control of learning and evolution by data, reliability, bias, security and confidentiality.
From this point of view, with the emergence of the most powerful generative AIs and the dazzling success of ChatGPT, a new stage has unquestionably been reached.
Hence the importance of devising a strategy for regulating AI not only through ethics, but also through the law. And to set up a genuine legal ecosystem specific to algorithms.
Worldwide, a movement is taking shape to create a trustworthy artificial intelligence. Europe is launching an unprecedented legislative package: With the Digital Service Act at the forefront, several directives and regulations are on the drawing board in Brussels. For the first time, the EU is preparing to draw the boundaries of what is acceptable for our democratic societies.
As a forerunner in the advanced technology sector, ten years ago the firm launched a department dedicated to the law of robotics and artificial intelligence, anticipating the legal recognition of a new technological revolution at least as important as computers and the Internet were in the 20th century.
Ten years on, the development of robotics has led to the establishment of a dedicated legal framework, the fruit of legislative and regulatory standards, but also of “soft law”, sometimes scattered, often sector-specific, which has the merit of “showing the way” to an industry waiting for legal and ethical solutions, and to users of connected objects who wish to be reassured above all about the use made of their personal data.
