International Conference on LAW & REGULATION OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE : A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE
25TH FEBRUARY, 2019

CALL FOR CONFERENCE AND PAPER SUBMISSIONS!

We are living in the era of Artificial Intelligence. And with more data points connected and integrated into it, every industry, individual and device is governed and impacted by it. As AI advances and proliferates into various aspects of businesses the need to set the legal framework around it increases.

Major concerns within the legal framework revolve around issues such as privacy, legal liability, enactment and enforcement of the regulatory laws etc. Recognizing a need to meet this challenge early on, IFIM Law School in association with Comparative Legislation Society, Paris, is organizing the first International Conference on the intersection of AI with Data Privacy and the pressing need for an appropriate regulatory framework.

AI AND DATA PRIVACY

Enormous data streams which are collected by corporations and government can be utilised for the benefit of society by means of AI analysing it and giving effective output. But sudden growing concern regarding the abuse of data by big corporation has caught everyone’s attention today. Isn’t the data used by the State and Corporations necessary for holistic growth of the world? The emergence of a new concept in the system always shakes the proper functioning but does it mean that entry should be banned or balance should be brought through controlled regulation?

AI AS DECISION MAKING TOOL

Can AI be used by the judiciary? The use of AI in the judiciary will help in minimising the influence of extraneous factors such as weariness and emotional instability at the time of pronouncement of judgment. Though there can be threat of structural bias in the AI decision making itself, which stems from the data collected for AI training from the legal system. Can artificial intelligence give better judgment then human brains? In case of error can AI be made responsible or the legal system? Can Explainable AI bring a perfect AI Judge?
