The European Commission has proposed rules to make it easier for individuals and companies to sue manufacturers of drones, robots and other products equipped with artificial intelligence software for compensation for the harm they cause, Reuters reports.

The AI Liability Directive aims to address the growing use of AI-enabled products and services as well as contradictions between national rules in the 27 European Union countries.

Under the draft rules, victims can seek compensation for injuries to their lives, property, health and privacy caused by the fault or omission of a supplier, developer or user of AI technology, or for discrimination in the hiring process using AI.

Under the right of access to evidence  victims can ask the court to compel companies and suppliers to provide information on high-risk artificial intelligence systems so they can identify the culprit who caused the damage.

The Commission also announced an update to the Product Liability Directive, which means manufacturers will be liable for all unsafe products, tangible and intangible, including software and digital services, and after the products are sold.

Users can sue for compensation when software updates make their smart home products insecure or when manufacturers fail to address cybersecurity gaps. Those with unsecured products from non-EU countries will be able to sue the manufacturer's representative in the EU.

The AI liability directive must be negotiated with EU countries and EU lawmakers before it becomes law.
