MozFest 2021: Discussion Our voice in AI regulation debate - is anyone listening?


In 2019, Council of Europe (CoE) set up Ad Hoc Committee on Artificial Intelligence (CAHAI). CAHAI is tasked to identify potential regulatory frameworks for AI in Europe. This is viewed as a standard-setting process globally, with many actors already directly involved. But many voices are missing in this debate.

CAHAI will begin final consultation process early 2021, with last chance to input regulatory standard setting. ECNL, on behalf of the CoE Conference of International NGOs (CINGO) is one of the members of this Committee, and helps provide and coordinate civic input. We wish to bring the discussion to MozFest participants and explore most important issues to be included for regulatory considerations. Here is a chance to have direct say into the content of the future regulation.

MozFest is a unique hybrid: part art, tech and society convening, part maker festival, and the premiere gathering for activists in diverse global movements fighting for a more humane digital world. Over the last ten years, MozFest has fueled the movement to ensure the internet benefits humanity, rather than harms it. As the festival matures and moves online for this year, we’ll remain focused in our work to build a healthier internet and more Trustworthy AI.
