Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 21 gennaio 2020

Bruxelles. Wednesday 22 January 2020, 9.00 – 12.30 and 14.30 – 17.30 Thursday 23 January 2020, 9.00 – 11.00 Antall building, room 4Q1. The Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO) Committee will vote on a resolution addressing several challenges arising from the rapid development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology and automated decision-making, in particular those related with consumer choice. Services and goods using AI bring with them the risk of consumers being misled, discriminated against or even harmed, for example in relation to differentiated pricing or to automated professional services carried out without human oversight.
MEPs want to ensure that only non-biased data is used in automated decision-making processes.The committee will also assess whether the existing EU product safety and liability rules need to be adapted to cover new AI-enabled products and services, in order to ensure free movement in the single market and that consumers are protected and receive compensation if harm occurs.- Competition policy – annual report 2019 – rapporteur from the lead Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee: Stéphanie Yon-Courtin (Renew, FR) – adoption of a draft opinion by the Internal Market Committee in letter form
The aim of the hearing is to hear the views of stakeholders (business and consumers associations) and academia on the need to review the Product Liability Directive and on related challenges in the new digital age. It would allow participants to present their views on whether the overall liability regime is adequate to facilitate the uptake of the new technologies, and to address the matter from different perspectives.It will also offer the opportunity to hear the Commission’s conclusions of its evaluation work and results achieved in the expert group on liability and new technologies together with a presentation of further plans in this regard.The implications and new challenges for liability legislation brought by digitisation, the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and cybersecurity are among the issues to be addressed in the hearing. The Product Liability Directive, adopted in 1985, gives consumers the right to claim compensation for damage caused by defective products.
