What is the scope of the AI how-to sheets?

16 October 2023

The CNIL wishes to provide practical clarifications and recommendations for the development of artificial intelligence (AI) systems and the creation of datasets involving personal data used for their learning. The CNIL defines the scope of the different how-to sheets.

The following sheets apply specifically to certain AI systems. They concern only the development phase where it involves the processing of personal data and do not deal with the deployment phase. They are limited to the processing of data subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

They aim at accompanying a large number of professionals with both legal and technical profiles (such as data protection officers, legal professionals, AI practitioners, etc.).
