Generative AI: what are the implications for human rights and the rule of law?

As part of the Council of Europe's Wednesday series, we invite you to a conference organised by the Council of Europe on AI (artificial intelligence) and its impact on human rights, democracy and the rule of law. The publicity given to the performance of generative artificial intelligence (GAI) since the end of 2022 has aroused considerable public interest. Whether generating images from text (Midjourney, Dall-E, ...), videos or texts developed from questions written in natural language (ChatGPT, Bard, ...) or even music (MusicLM, ...), large language models (LLM) have proved their ability to re-enchant the imagination around AI applications.

The prospects opened up by these tools have raised many questions: intellectual property of the material generated, approximations of the texts generated, risks of industrialisation of disinformation and democratic interference. While governance initiatives are multiplying, some members of the scientific community are calling for a regulatory approach to their use.

This conference will be led by Murielle Popa Fabre, an expert in automatic language processing for the Council of Europe, who will clarify the characteristics of text-generating AI with a view to bridging the gap between technical knowledge and governance, by putting a few examples into perspective with regard to the issues at stake for human rights, democracy and the rule of law, and by Kristian Bartholin, Secretary of the Council of Europe's Committee on Artificial Intelligence (CAI), who will talk about the draft international treaty currently being negotiated within the Council of Europe.
