This Monday (5), while speaking in Paris, at the headquarters of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco), the president of the Federal Supreme Court (STF), minister Luís Roberto Barroso, returned to defend the regulation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to “protect fundamental rights, democracy, security and governance”.

The statement was given during a lecture at the Judicial Conference of the G20 Supreme Courts for ambassadors from several countries.

According to Barroso, artificial intelligence (AI) can affect democracy, fundamental rights and social well-being, both positively and negatively. As a positive aspect, the minister said that technology can be very useful to the courts to, for example, combat judicial delays.

Last week, when speaking at the opening of the judicial year of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, in San José, Costa Rica, Barroso presented what he called a “set of principles and values” for the regulation of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

The minister’s proposal is based on three pillars: fundamental rights, protection of democracy and the governance and security of AI.

On the occasion, Barroso explained that these guidelines include the protection of user data and privacy, as well as “equality” to avoid “algorithmic discrimination”, freedom of expression, individual autonomy, copyright, and the fight against to hate speech.
