This report presents the results of SIENNA research on legal developments and approaches to specific legal issues and human rights challenges related to artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics at the international, EU and national level (12 countries, EU and non-EU). The report broadly discusses the legal issues and human rights challenges of AI and robotics and analyses relevant international, EU and regional laws and human rights standards. It summarises and compares the results of the country studies on law, AI and robotics. It also discusses existing norms and standards and gaps and presents some recommendations and ways to overcome gaps. This report will feed into the forthcoming SIENNA work on enhancing the existing legal framework that will identify potential changes needed in dialogue with legislators and relevant committees.
