The principle "Draft Text of The Recommendation on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence" has mentioned the topic "freedom" in the following places:

    · Respect, protection and promotion of human rights and fundamental freedoms and human dignity

    · Respect, protection and promotion of human rights and fundamental freedoms and human dignity

    · Respect, protection and promotion of human rights and fundamental freedoms and human dignity

    The inviolable and inherent dignity of every human constitutes the foundation for the universal, indivisible, inalienable, interdependent and interrelated system of human rights and fundamental freedoms.

    · Respect, protection and promotion of human rights and fundamental freedoms and human dignity

    Throughout the life cycle of AI systems, the quality of life of human beings should be enhanced, while the definition of “quality of life” should be left open to individuals or groups, as long as there is no violation or abuse of human rights and fundamental freedoms, or the dignity of humans in terms of this definition.

    · Respect, protection and promotion of human rights and fundamental freedoms and human dignity

    Within such interactions, persons should never be objectified, nor should their dignity be otherwise undermined, or human rights and fundamental freedoms violated or abused.

    · Respect, protection and promotion of human rights and fundamental freedoms and human dignity

    Human rights and fundamental freedoms must be respected, protected and promoted throughout the life cycle of AI systems.

    · Living in peaceful, just and interconnected societies

    AI actors should play a participative and enabling role to ensure peaceful and just societies, which is based on an interconnected future for the benefit of all, consistent with human rights and fundamental freedoms.

    · Living in peaceful, just and interconnected societies

    This value demands that peace, inclusiveness and justice, equity and interconnectedness should be promoted throughout the life cycle of AI systems, in so far as the processes of the life cycle of AI systems should not segregate, objectify or undermine freedom and autonomous decision making as well as the safety of human beings and communities, divide and turn individuals and groups against each other, or threaten the coexistence between humans, other living beings and the natural environment.

    · Proportionality and Do No Harm

    In the event of possible occurrence of any harm to human beings, human rights and fundamental freedoms, communities and society at large or the environment and ecosystems, the implementation of procedures for risk assessment and the adoption of measures in order to preclude the occurrence of such harm should be ensured.

    · Transparency and explainability

    The transparency and explainability of AI systems are often essential preconditions to ensure the respect, protection and promotion of human rights, fundamental freedoms and ethical principles.

    · Transparency and explainability

    In addition, individuals should be able to access the reasons for a decision affecting their rights and freedoms, and have the option of making submissions to a designated staff member of the private sector company or public sector institution able to review and correct the decision.

    · Responsibility and accountability

    AI actors and Member States should respect, protect and promote human rights and fundamental freedoms, and should also promote the protection of the environment and ecosystems, assuming their respective ethical and legal responsibility, in accordance with national and international law, in particular Member States’ human rights obligations, and ethical guidance throughout the life cycle of AI systems, including with respect to AI actors within their effective territory and control.

    · Awareness and literacy

    Learning about the impact of AI systems should include learning about, through and for human rights and fundamental freedoms, meaning that the approach and understanding of AI systems should be grounded by their impact on human rights and access to rights, as well as on the environment and ecosystems.
