  Add to Calendar 2018-05-18 8:30 2018-05-19 16:45 Europe/Paris Opportunities and Challenges in Regulating Robotics and Artificial Intelligence. A comparative approach.

Disruptive innovations in Robotics and AI is rapidly changing the economy, government and society. Progress of technology has not only brought excitement about the positive potential for AI and robotics, but also raised concerns about the possible implications on safety, privacy, fairness, equality and democratic control. A worldwide debate involving Technologist, lawyers and policy makers is now ongoing on how to regulate AI.

The conference "Opportunities and Challenges in Regulating Robotics and Artificial Intelligence. A comparative approach" will give a global comparative perspective on laws and regulations on robotics and artificial intelligence in the European Union and the United States.

It will present a general overview of the state of the art of regional regulation/legislation initiatives. Moreover, it will provide practical policy recommendations to regulate new technologies without jeopardizing innovation and social progress.

The conference aims to be a matchmaking environment, to link the private sector with scholars and policymakers and promote dialogue on current and future challenges.

The conference will launch a network of academics to support EU policy makers in formulating responsive regulations on robotics and artificial intelligence. The long term objective is the creation of an observatory involving legal professionals, scientists, security experts and industry representatives.

It consists of both panel presentations and roundtable discussions, inspiration for which will be provided by prominent keynote speakers from European and National institutions and from Academia. A young researchers session with paper presentation is also scheduled.

-- Event organised by the EUI Law Department and Tech and Law, in collaboration with Google and Tech Policy Lab --
