The ethical principle of human intervention in civil liability


  • María Magdalena Bustos Díaz Universidad de Chile


One of the main challenges associated with regard to civil liability for damages resulting from artificial intelligence systems is the difficulty of attributing the behavior that led to harm to a specific individual. The aim of this article is to highlight the significance of the ethical principle of human intervention for civil liability. This principle serves as a guide for interpreting and applying rules when artificial intelligence systems cause harm to individuals due to actions, decisions, recommendations or predictions.
