Artificial intelligence (AI) has become an area of strategic importance, a key driver of economic development and more importantly a part of our everyday lives.
Undoubtedly, AI has the potential to bring solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges, from treating chronic diseases or helping us transport people and goods in a more efficient way to providing a more functional justice system for all.
However, as the EU Commission points out, legal and ethical impacts have to be carefully addressed.
In this context, we firmly believe that bringing legal professionals and AI experts is of crucial importance for the development of research and market initiatives.
Aiming at maximizing the benefits from this session, the workshop will mix invited talks from distinguished academics, panels consisting of scholars and representatives of the industry with demo sessions, which will focus on the legal implications of developing and using AI systems in practice.
Accompanied by a list of presentations of accepted papers, which will focus on a range of legal issues concerning AI, such as explainability, IP rights and liability, the workshop is expected to attract the interest of the SETN 2020 attendants and could lead to a publication with a comprehensive overview of the legal framework on AI and potential applications of AI in our legal system.
