Technology, contrary to what many think, is socially and culturally constructed. This means that, if we want it to provide us with higher levels of justice and equality, it is advisable to include a social and ethical dimension. In the case of Artificial Intelligence (AI), due to its own characteristics such as the use of big data and its data processing capabilities, this recommendation has become a must.
To enjoy the benefits of AI (greater effectiveness, efficiency, automation, personalization, tracking, detection, etc.), it is first necessary to ensure three things: that its use is within the limits set by the EU legal system in this matter, that the AI is robust from a technical point of view and that it is ethical. Compliance with these requirements is aimed at preventing the use of AI in Europe from leading to ethical and legal problems such as discrimination caused by biases, accountability problems, etc.
