The project defines rights for any context in which there is an interaction between a machine and a person. For example, in face recognition environments, people need to be informed. Regulation will be based on the risks in the context of the application.

According to the text, the proposal is the result of a draft prepared by the commission of lawyers during 2022.

The use of artificial intelligence is regulated by law

In order to ensure the safety and protection of the public, the law establishes that the use of artificial intelligence, which is considered to involve excessive risk, is prohibited. The measure aims to prevent behavior that could harm people’s health or safety, as well as the use of AI that could exploit vulnerabilities in certain groups such as children and the elderly.

State power is also subject to regulation as it is not allowed to use AI to classify social behavior or individuals. In addition, the use of AI to determine ratings and access to goods, services and government policies is also prohibited.

As far as public safety is concerned, the use of remote biometrics in public places is only permitted under a specific law, yet to be drafted, or with court approval. This measure aims to ensure the privacy and security of citizens in public places.
