With paper presentation by Natali Helberger and Theo Araujo on public attitudes and expectations towards automated decision-making.
|Datum||3 oktober 2019|
On 3 October 2019 at 12:00 a kick-off meeting will be organized at the Faculty of Law (Seminar room A3.01) for all researchers with an interest in the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in adjudication and the administration of justice. The meeting aims to bring together colleagues from different departments and disciplines to get an overview of the various types of research and perspectives on AI & adjudication within the UvA, as well as to share and develop common research ideas.
This meeting will be the kick-off for a collaboration between IViR and ACLP, within the research themes of the university-wide RPA Humane AI. One of the focus points lies on the need for more conceptual, normative research into the fundamental rights, societal values and ethics of automated decision-making (ADM). ACLP is specifically oriented towards the role and responsibilities of judges, public prosecutors and lawyers. What is the meaning of AI and ADM for the legal professions? Questions that could be raised are, for instance, what skills and ethical/professional guidelines they need to work with AI; how and to what extent AI may replace, supplement or support access to justice, legal proceedings and judicial decision-making; and which norms and values should be prioritized in this process.
We would like to invite everyone who is working on these issues to join us for the meeting. We will start with an introductory round, followed by a paper presentation (see below) by Natali Helberger, University professor Law and Digital Technology, and Theo Araujo, co-director of the Digital Communication Methods Lab.
