When algorithms replace humans, what is at stake?

- Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly involved in our daily decisions but raises practical and ethical issues.
- A distinction must be made between the notion of interpretability of AI (its functioning) and the notion of accountability (the degree of responsibility of the creator/user).
- A draft European regulation should lead in 2023 to a classification of AIs according to different levels of risk.
- AI can free humans from time-consuming and repetitive tasks and allow them to focus on more important tasks.
- It is in France’s interest to invest in this type of AI for very large projects because it has access to colossal amounts of data to process.
