Artificial intelligence poses challenges for strengthening the European human rights system
In mid-November, Finland will begin its term as Chair of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe. “The European human rights system is facing a new challenge: artificial intelligence,” says Ambassador Satu Mattila-Budich.
This winter, Finland will organise a conference in Helsinki on how to take human rights into account amidst the rapid development of digitalisation and artificial intelligence.
According to Mattila-Budich, Finland’s Chairmanship coincides with many challenges.
“The Council of Europe is facing a very difficult political and economic situation, which is largely due to Russia. Russia has remained outside of parliamentary cooperation since 2014 and has not paid its membership fees,” Mattila-Budich explains.
