Online Course: “Artificial Intelligence: Laws, Challenges and Opportunities”, October 25-26 (EIPA, Maastricht)

Artificial intelligence has become the mainstream data-driven technologies during these last years due to its ability to drive transformation across multiple sectors. While the potential benefits of artificial intelligence technologies can be massive for growth and development, ‘there is no such thing as a technological silver bullet’.

Over the last decades, the concept of data protection has been provoked by technological innovation, and with artificial intelligence technologies, it is no different.

How can we responsibly develop artificial intelligence technologies and ensure strong legal and regulatory frameworks?

How can we ensure that collected personal data are used with positive benefits by artificial intelligence technologies?
How can we make sure we are not setting an undesirable precedent for the future?
What are the benefits and challenges AI systems can bring to our society?

These are some of the questions we are going to tackle during this course. With a particular focus on European policy-making and the European legal frameworks and proposals, we will pinpoint the challenges and opportunities posed by these new technologies and find clear methods to address such challenges as a pre-condition to develop an ecosystem of trust.
