“Governance of AI and Robotics: A European Approach?”
Rapid progress of AI and Robotics has triggered a worldwide debate on how to regulate autonomous systems. In April 2018, the European Commission issued a communication putting forward a „European approach to AI“. In November 2018, the German Government adopted its own strategy „AI made in Germany“. The 2nd RAILS-Conference will focus on both approaches. In addition, we will discuss the topics „Liability for Autonomous Systems“ and „Algorithmic Discrimination“.
The conference programme is divided into three panels dealing with the following topics:
Regulation Initiatives – by whom and how?
Virginia Dignum, Chair of Ethical and Social Artificial Intelligence at the Umeå University
Gabriele Mazzini, European Commission, DG Justice
European Liability Law
Wolfgang Nejdl, Full Professor of Computer Science at the University of Hanover
Gerald Spindler, Full Professor of Law at the University of Göttingen, Department of Civil Law, Commercial and Economic Law, Comparative Law, Multimedia and Telecommunication Law
Discrimination and Manipulation through Algorithms
Krishna P. Gummadi, Full Professor at the Networked Systems Research Group, Max Planck Institute for Software Systems, Saarbrucken
Martin Ebers, Associate Professor of IT Law at the University of Tartu, Estonia
Exact time slots and possible further speakers will be announced soon.
