On September 28th, 2022, the European Commission released two proposals, the aim of which is to regulate civil liability in relation to AI-enabled systems, drawing from the Commission’s White Paper1 considerations on the use of such systems: a revised version of the Defective Product Liability Directive (PLD)2 and a Directive that adapts non-contractual civil liability rules to Artificial Intelligence (AI Liability Directive)3. The combination of these proposals with that of April 21st, 2021, Laying Down Harmonized Rules On Artificial Intelligence (AI Act)4, will result in the national liability frameworks being adapted to the digital age, the circular economy and global value chains.
The EIT Health Consultative Group, which includes as a member Professor Theodore Christakis (AI Regulation Chair at MIAI and co-director of the Grenoble Alpes Data Institute), submitted this report to provide informed views on the European Commission’s Data Strategy and AI White Paper.
