Expert group

In September 2018, under the leadership of the State Chancellery and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications, a CRA expert group began, whose task is to develop proposals:

1) to prepare a draft law in order to bring clarity to the Estonian legal space and organize the necessary supervision and thus make possible the use of crates, i.e. fully autonomous information systems in the Estonian economic space in all possible areas of life;

2) to prepare an action plan for artificial intelligence in Estonia;
