To celebrate Data Protection Day, the Legality Attentive Data Scientists, with the Brussels Privacy Hub explore one of the biggest open challenges of data protection law: explainability and accountability of Artificial Intelligence. The event, with high-level stakeholders and experts, address the twists and thorns of developing legality attentive Artificial Intelligence as a standard for our societies.

Artificial Intelligence raises concerns for many fields of its actual and possible application for its risks of extending control on individuals and further unbalancing powers among individuals and\or with institutions and businesses. Keeping AIs in line with the law and with the EU fundamental values and ethical principles is more than a need, it is the footprint of the European approach and benchmarking of research and production of Artificial Intelligence -based solutions.
