Giuliano Amato leaves the algorithms commission: “My appointment is not the prime minister’s”


The appointment as president of the body established to study risks and opportunities related to artificial intelligence arrived in October, causing irritation on the part of Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni who yesterday during the end-of-year press conference spoke about it and commented on the words of the former Prime Minister released in an interview

Giuliano Amato is no longer the president of the Algorithms Commission. The former president of the Constitutional Court revealed this in an interview with Corriere della sera, explaining that it is “a commission of the presidency of the Council and given that my appointment does not appear to be an initiative of the president of the Council, I will leave without the task is different”. The appointment as president of the body established to study risks and opportunities related to artificial intelligence arrived in October, causing irritation on the part of Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni who yesterday during the end-of-year press conference spoke about Amato’s appointment and commented on the words of the former Prime Minister released in an interview.

What Giorgia Meloni said in the press conference

Amato’s decision came the day after the words of Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, who at the press conference on 4 January said that “on the topic of the algorithms commission, I think we know that it was not my initiative and I basically said that what I thought, but beyond this I have nothing specifically to say to Professor Amato, I was frankly shocked by his statements regarding the Constitutional Court”.

Amato’s response

“It’s a shame, they lose something, but it will make my life easier,” said Amato speaking to the newspaper. “I absolutely didn’t talk about the election of the Court’s judges – underlined the former prime minister -. I highlighted another problem, as anyone who actually read the interview knows. I talked about the reception of the Court’s decisions, anyone who ‘has elected, and to date in Italy the Prime Minister has never been the one to raise this question. Other members of her majority have started, but not her.” In the interview commented by the prime minister, Amato also spoke of the risk that the Constitutional Courts are branded as enemies of the community, citing the case of Poland, and “I also said that in our country what happened there now is inconceivable – he specified -. Of course it could happen because there is nothing to prevent it, but it is now considered inconceivable.”
