Tomorrow, the Federal Senate of the Brazilian National Congress may have its first vote on the country’s new artificial intelligence (AI) legal framework, which takes a human rights, risk management, and transparency approach.

The bill, to be marked-up by the Senate Temporary Committee on Artificial Intelligence (“CTIA”), creates a broad and detailed legal framework. It contains rules on the rights of affected persons and groups, risk categorization and management, governance of AI systems, civil liability, penalties for non-compliance, and copyright protection. It also includes specific provisions for government use of AI, best practices and self-regulation, and communication of serious security incidents. Finally, it establishes an inter-agency regulatory system at the federal government level, whose main regulator will be chosen by the executive branch.Continue Reading Key Vote Expected on Brazil’s Artificial Intelligence Legal Framework
