Estonia has started public discussion on how to regulate Artificial Intelligence (AI)

The question of AI is quite complex and wide and has been a focus topic for legal experts in Estonia, including  Ellex IT, Cyber security and Technology team, for a while now. A group of experts has been working on finding the best ways how to define liability of AI in a user-friendly way, so that average citizens on the street would actually understand, in case of an incident for example, who is exactly liable in that particular case.
 
The question of liability is way more complex than just pointing fingers at who is to blame in case of an incident. In many cases, AI is built in a way that for humans the decision-making process is intuitive. This means, from a legal perspective, that it is rather difficult to point fingers because even the creators of certain algorithms don’t exactly know why the algorithm made that particular decision at that particular point. So this type of black box algorithms are rather complex from a legal point of view, and to define liability is really important to have the public discussion now, because all these kind of algorithms will be coming to our lives from various sides.
