Using Artificial Intelligence for Legislation – Thinking About and Selecting Realistic Topics
Jörn von Lucke, Zeppelin University; Fotiοs Fitsilis, Hellenic Parliament and Jan Etscheid, Zeppelin University
Parliaments are currently investigating the use of applications based on artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to perform certain tasks. Reflecting on conceivable tools, fields of application, usage scenarios and needs, it is reasonable to expect AI-induced changes in parliaments. This makes even more peculiar the fact that the introduction of AI in parliaments is a generally under-researched topic. This article contributes to the bridging of this gap by presenting empirical evidence for the future use of AI-based tools and services in the legislation workspace. The data were collected during a brainstorming exercise and a virtual workshop in 2021. The analysis sheds light in the prioritization of AI-based technologies within the parliamentary environment. In the course of the study, the relevance and the priority of more than 210 applications and topics of AI technologies in parliament have been investigated for several parliamentary sectors, including 36 proposals around law-making competencies and procedures, dubbed as “legislation”. The main findings regarding legislation are presented.
