Algorithmic accountability in the EU: who is responsible if AI causes harm in the workplace?

Mar 29, 2023 | 1:15 PM - 1:45 PM


As AI makes its way in the workplace, clear accountability is needed to ensure that AI actors know who is responsible for preventing AI from causing harm to workers in terms of physical health and safety, well-being and fundamental rights. Accountability is also essential to make redress possible if AI has an adverse impact on workers or job seekers. To date, it is still not always clear which actor linked to the AI system is responsible if something goes wrong. In this session, Sandra Wachter and Yordanka Ivanova will discuss how existing and draft legislation –such as the GDPR and the EU AI Act – address accountability for AI systems used in the workplace.
