Council risks failing human rights in the AI Act

In a joint civil society organisations letter ahead of the E.U. Artificial Intelligence Act (AI Act) trilogue negotiation on 6 December, Amnesty International urges the Representatives of the Council of the European Union to effectively regulate the use of AI systems by law enforcement, migration control and national security authorities throughout Europe.

Without meaningful regulation of the use of AI in law enforcement, the AI Act will not fulfil its promise to put people’ safety first and it will fail human rights at large.
