When it comes to robotics and AI, we cannot afford to hesitate.In February of this year, the European Parliament adopted a resolution calling for the establishment of new rules governing AI and robotics. We are asking the European Commission to propose measures that will maximize the economic benefits of these technologies, while also guaranteeing a standard level of safety and security. While other countries are also considering new rules for robots and AI, the EU has a unique opportunity to take the lead. Ultimately, global rules will be required, and Europe has a chance to set the standard for what they should look like.Robotics and AI will also raise profound ethical issues for liberal politicians, particularly with respect to privacy and safety.The European Parliament has proposed a voluntary code of conduct for engineers and others working in the field of robotics. Lastly, the European Parliament has called on the European Commission to consider creating a new EU-level agency for robotics and AI, to provide public officials with technical, ethical and regulatory expertise.
