Artificial intelligence and vehicle regulations

UNECE, June 22, 2018

In 2015, public figures warned the international community with an Open Letter on Artificial Intelligence1 about the potential risks related to the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI). In 2017, more than hundred renowned experts wrote a letter2 to the United Nations stating their position on potential risks related to AI. Also in 2017, an experiment got public attention when it was reported3 that the experiment had to be abandoned after two artificially intelligent programs involved in the experiment appeared to be chatting to each other in a strange language only they understood, highlighting the risk of a AI systems control loss and recalling some science fictions about the rise of super intelligences that do not act in accordance with human wishes.

AI has found some prominent applications in the automotive sector. Some of these applications are related to infotainment and vehicle management (as Human Machine Interface (HMI) enhancement) e.g. infotainment management (incl. destination entry in the navigation systems). Some applications are related to the development of the vehicle self-driving capability.
