The study analyses existing European and national legislation on the regulation of drones for civil use. Based on the European Approach to AI (dated 25 April 2018) and the EU’s sustainable approach to emerging technologies, the study elaborates recommendations for future policy formulation related to liability or potentially biased decision-making.

The study by Andrea Bertolini is developed in the “law and technology” field of research at Sant’Anna School. The EU and EU projects such as Robolaw must ensure that AI is developed and applied in an appropriate framework that promotes citizens’ rights as well as ethical principles.
