On the occasion of Data Protection Day on 28 January, the Committee of the Council of Europe’s data protection treaty “Convention 108” has published Guidelines on Artificial Intelligence and Data Protection.

The guidelines aim to assist policy makers, artificial intelligence (AI) developers, manufacturers and service providers in ensuring that AI applications do not undermine the right to data protection.

The Convention’s Committee underlines that the protection of human rights, including the right to protection of personal data, should be an essential pre-requisite when developing or adopting AI applications, in particular when they are used in decision-making processes, and be based on the principles of the updated data protection convention, “Convention 108+, opened for signature in October 2018.
