ChatGPT’s draft law asks the Costa Rican government to create an institution to regulate AI systems. This institution should be governed by the principles of accountability, explainability, bias prevention, and protection of human rights.

Furthermore, it asked the government to create regulations using fundamental rights and international conventions as a base. However, it was unable to identify any rights and conventions in particular that it referred to in the draft.
