Regulating Artificial Intelligence - Professor Chris Reed

When: Thursday, November 24, 2022, 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Where: Room 2.1, Centre For Commercial Law Studies 67-69 Lincoln's Inn Fields London WC2A 3JB

During Professor Reed’s sabbatical year he will deliver occasional seminars to share his findings. His research project integrates law, philosophy and ethics, sociology, psychology, economics and computer science. The hoped for outcome is to be able to explain how regulators can realistically require AI to behave fairly, reasonably etc. The big problem is that law and regulation never define fairness or reasonableness, because these are assumed to be shared, innate human characteristics. AI developers need more guidance than this!

In this first seminar he outlines the project and then offers some initial thoughts about the law/computer science interface, and what fairness might mean in that context.
