Artificial Intelligence and the Rights of the Child : Towards an Integrated Agenda for Research and Policy (JRC Publication - 2022)
This report proposes a set of science-for-policy future directions for AI and child’s rights. It connects research and policy to gain insights by the interplay among different stakeholders and to go beyond the identification of ethical guidelines towards methods for practical future implementations.
For the formulation of the proposed directions, it was considered the current relevant policy initiatives by major international organizations and the recent coordinated actions on AI by the European Commission as well as the state-of-the art of the scientific work on AI-based technologies for children with a focus on three applications, conversational agents, recommender systems and robotic systems.
In addition, it is considered the results of two workshops with young people and three workshops with experts and policymakers that contributed to the formulation of a set of requirements, methods and knowledge gaps as an integrated agenda for research and policy on AI and the rights of the child.
