The Technologies, Law and Society Research Group’s International Symposium Governing Artificial Intelligence: Designing Legal and Regulatory Responses.

Friday 3 June 2022, 9:00am - 5.30pm. Location: Trinity Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin.

Symposium Objectives

Founded in 1740, Trinity College Dublin’s School of Law, is one of the leading Law Schools in Europe. The Technologies, Law and Society Group in the School of Law is organising a one-day symposium on addressing the global challenge presented by the growing impact of artificial intelligence (‘AI’) on business, society, and the world of work.

The symposium aims at examining the legal and regulatory challenges posed in the fourth industrial revolution by the advent of AI. Contributors to the symposium will seek to engage creatively with the benefits offered by AI, dangers posed and potential legal and regulatory approaches. AI brings unparalleled opportunities but significant ethical, legal, and regulatory challenges, raising issues that frequently transcend national boundaries. Algorithmic engagement with big data, machine learning, autonomous vehicles, and robo-advisors (to name but a few) are challenging incumbent practices and firms. This evolution gives rise to new issues which hold significance, not just for private parties, but for governments, legislators, regulators, policymakers, and courts and, more broadly, for how fields of law respond to AI’s emergence. Can law and regulation be optimised to address the challenges posed without unduly stifling innovation?
