November 3, 2022, 10 a.m. – 1.30 p.m., Bochum
Innovative data-driven technologies and the discussion about the modalities of their regulation are dominating topics in law, politics, economics and society. Quite often, innovation and regulation are seen as enemies. But is this really true? Will upcoming regulation in the European Union (such as the Digital Services Act or the Artificial Intelligence Act), as some claim, stifle innovation and strengthen China and the US which are seen as the antithesis of the “European Way”? Is a strict regulation of innovative technologies an indication of a strong rule of law or the opposite? How can regulation help to promote innovation?
We will discuss these and a variety of other questions at our interdisciplinary workshop.
The workshop is part of the research program of CAIS guest professor Martin Ebers, who focusses in his research on AI, regulation and standardization.
