AI and the Rights of the Children

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Rights of the Child (AIRoC) is a research activity of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission. Framed under the Cybersecurity Education, Awareness and Societal aspects (CEAS) and the HUMAINT scientific projects, AIRoC has the aim to explore and contribute to the current knowledge regarding AI and the implications of its development and use in relation to children and their rights. This activity contributes to the wider activity of the European Commission towards the transformation of Europe into the global hub for trustworthy Artificial Intelligence (AI).

To kick-off this research project, the JRC team produced a ‘setting-the-scene’ JRC report and several scientific publications. It organized a workshop with youngsters to hear their voices and perceptions on the impact of AI and children’s rights in Spring 2021. Now, time has come to further discuss and enrich research and analysis with external experts in the field.
