Conference The Law of Artificial Intelligence
In September, the Católica Research Centre for the Future of Law and the Catholic University of Portugal, Faculty of Law organized a conference on The Law of Artificial Intelligence. This international event aimed to contribute to a better understanding of the complex legal issues surrounding the Artificial Intelligence.
The panel discussions revolved around the intersection of AI and legal decision-making, AI and business, AI and intellectual property, AI and constitutional rights, and AI and liability. Tjaša Zapušek, research assistant at IPI presented recent findings of her PhD research at University of Zürich. She talked about differences between three different ‘decision-making processes’ that occur as a consequence of three different types of systems, namely, three different types of algorithms (deterministic algorithm, a supervised, or an unsupervised learning algorithm). Through this systematization she examined legal concerns regarding foreseeability and certainty of the system’s actions. The research outcomes led her to the conclusion that the presence of artificial intelligence in our everyday life will definitely call into question the efficiency of existing legal rules at both European and national level.
The 4th Open Knowledge Day took place on Tuesday 17 October 2023, with an accompanying workshop on 18 October 2023. This year it was organised by the Open Data and Intellectual Property Institute (ODIPI) and supported by Knowledge Rights 21 (KR21).
We invite you to the fourth Open Knowledge Day and the workshop, which will take place this year within the framework of the programme and with the support of Knowledge Rights 21. The event will bring together experts from different European countries to discuss two topics: the first part will deal with the legal basis for data analytics, which is a key part of machine learning and related artificial intelligence, and the general exception for research. In the second part, open science in theory and practice will be presented both in Slovenia and in some Western Balkan countries. Representatives of research and educational institutions from Slovenia and the Western Balkan countries, as well as interested members of the public, are invited to attend.
Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, a renowned expert in copyright law, has joined the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, where she will serve as an affiliate researcher for the next two years.
