Abstract

The development of AI will bring with it a plethora of new economic and social opportunities. Areas that are as distinct as agriculture and health will be inevitably changed. However, this “new” technology also brings with it fundamental challenges and a new reality that our current legal framework is not yet prepared to deal with. In this paper, we will study the opportunities that AI brings to the European Union, the difficulties of regulating it, the current state of affairs, and the
initiatives currently being drawn up to guarantee that the EU can keep up and even become a leader in this area. Our focus will be on the areas of health, labour market, liability rules and the challenges for the integration of robots in our daily lives.
