Artificial Intelligence: Machine Learning and the Law
Neural Information Processing Systems Conference
18 July 2019
Clifford Chance is sponsoring a seminar at the Neural Information Processing Systems conference, in conjunction with the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence and the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk. We are also pleased to announce, in partnership with the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, our award for Future Intelligence and the Law.
Advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence mean that predictions and decisions of algorithms are already in use in many important situations under legal or regulatory control, and this is likely to increase dramatically in the near future. Examples include deciding whether to approve a bank loan, driving an autonomous car, or even predicting whether a prison inmate is likely to offend again if released. This symposium will explore the key themes of privacy, liability, transparency and fairness specifically as they relate to the legal treatment and regulation of algorithms and data. Our primary goals are (i) to inform our community about important current and ongoing legislation (e.g. the EU’s GDPR which introduces a "right to explanation"); and (ii) to bring together the legal and technical communities to help form better policy in the future.
As Artificial Intelligence becomes increasingly developed, we are staying at the forefront of the legal developments in this area.
