Online / Stockholm

Arranged by: 
IRI - The Swedish Law and Informatics Reasearch Institute

Participation is possible on site at Näringslivets Hus in Stockholm or online.

AI has been a research topic for decades, in essence as long as computers have been in existence, but only recently has it become an area of strategic importance and a key driver of economic development. Not only has AI become a focal point in the industrial and consumer consciousness, but it has also been placed at the top of many national agendas, with countries investing billions in this technology. In particular, the EU as well as research funding organisations are allocating considerable resources to the study of AI, and many countries are actively pursuing national initiatives in this area.

The practical use of AI raises many questions and there are many predictions about its future applications: some people imagine AI as the future of mankind while others see it as an existential threat (great threat to society?). There are opportunities and obstacles and many legal, ethical and technical issues. Law in the Era of AI addresses the rapid development of AI from multiple perspectives.

The Conference is divided into four blocks:

1. Data Protection

2. Transparency

3. Liability

4. How to Regulate?

The blocks begin with presentations of speakers with different backgrounds and extensive experience concerning the addressed issues. Several international experts will participate. In addition to drawing a picture of where we stand today, each block will include a moderated discussion.
