Abstract

The present article proposes that all AI that directly or indirectly impacts children, also in the educational processes, must always take children’s rights and interests always first. It highlights the legal duty to respect, protect and their rights by States and private actors, like tech-companies, in the design, developing and provision of any AI technology, product or service. In this sense, proposes that the Children's Rights by Design (CRbD) standard should be always applied by States and corporations.
