Regarding the legal risks that may be implied by an algorithm managing an algorithm without human intervention, Urgorri recognized “some controversy” regarding automated minutes. «But it seems that the regulations have already been made and developed. The operation is still a bit lacking, but it could be done., he pointed out. However, he stressed that there are many other tasks within the inspection that require human intervention.
