Abstract

The process of digital transformation in which we live, in which emerging disruptive technologies are becoming increasingly relevant, including -among others- smart technologies (Smart technologies) or Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems, affects the Law including Public law and Constitutional law, at least as Law had been understood until now, and especially also from the perspective of fundamental rights.

Indeed, although these so called Smart/emerging/disruptive technologies or innovative ones present multiple challenges for Public and Constitutional law , including, inter alia, the aporias that are generated in the affectation of the legal categories, which call for rethinking and rethinking some categories and concepts that cannot be conceived as permanent and unalterable, reaching in their case, if necessary, to consider the creation of new categories; the problems linked to the regulation (and the regulation model), the identification of affected fundamental rights and the protection of them.

Keywords: digital transformation, disruptive technologies, Artificial Intelligence, Fundamental Rights, EU law
