artificial intelligence, legal regulation, fourth industrial revolution, climate change, European Union


Artificial intelligence is one of the most fundamental areas of science and engineering. Its urban development began after the Second World War, and the name itself dates back to 1956. Today, artificial intelligence as a universal field is relevant to all intellectual tasks that tries not only to understand, but also to build intelligent entities. Given that today is characterized by facing increasingly serious environmental problems (challenges) such as climate change, loss of biodiversity, depletion of natural resources, air and water pollution, the need for innovative approaches that will help solve these problems is becoming increasingly urgent. Therefore, in this paper, we will present some of the possible ways of solving the mentioned problems. Given that the application of artificial intelligence is increasing every day and that it enters every pore of modern society, we will also make a brief review of artificial intelligence in the legal system of the European Union.
