Workshops on Artificial Intelligence, Ethics and the Law: What Challenges? What Opportunities?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is no longer sci-fi. From driverless cars to the use of machine learning algorithms to improve healthcare services and the financial industry, AI and algorithms are shaping our daily practices and a fast-growing number of fundamental aspects of our societies.
This can lead to dangerous situations in which vital decision making is automated – for instance in credit scoring or sentencing – but limited policies exist for citizens subject to such AI technologies embedded in our social institutions to seek redress. Similarly, well-intended technologists might release AI into society that is ethically unsound.
