There have been numerous discussions in recent years concerning the challenges posed by the prevalent use ( which is likely to grow exponentially in the foreseeable future), of Artificial Intelligence technologies on legal standards and the application of human rights. This question is emphasized in connection with the right to privacy and the control of personal data in cyberspace, as more and more processing of personal data is conducted by AI technologies. The GDPR, in force as of May 2018, constitutes one of the earliest attempts to legally regulate AI and balance its advantages against the risks to the rights and freedoms of natural persons. Is the GDPR successful in this endeavor? That remains to be seen.
