Artificial Intelligence: The Future of Regulation - A Conversation with Lord Clement-Jones

Date: 22 June 2020

Time: 12.00 - 13.30 BST

Venue: Webinar


Event Details

This is the third webinar in our series on 'Artificial Intelligence: Opportunities, Risks, and the Future of Regulation'.

The intellectual and policy narratives of our times are dominated by the concepts of machine learning, use of Big Data, and the emergence of systems that will simulate human thinking and intelligence. The ethical issues raised by AI systems have received considerable attention but insufficient attribution and operational location. The regulation of AI however remains fragmented, not up to speed with technology, and dominated by 'rights-focused' data protection models and assumptions of self-regulatory compliance with varying sets of ethical principles. But, and in a world recovering from a pandemic, and reliance on AI technologies being part of that recovery, what is imperative is a global regulatory engagement employing a legitimate and universal governance language such as rule of law, which is market sensitive, rights respecting, strongly principled, and open to evaluation and accountability. Like AI, rule of law is truly international and as such offers an established regulatory field which offers the human/machine interface a global legal foundation.

Lord Clement-Jones CBE will lead a conversation with leading figures in this field, including:

  • Paul Nemitz, EU Commission
  • Prof Christopher Hodges, Oxford University
  • Jacob Turner, Fountain Court Chambers
  • Claudia Pagliari, Edinburgh University

The first webinar 'COVID-19, Artificial Intelligence and Data Governance: A Conversation with Lord Tim Clement-Jones' is available here.

Event convened by Dr Irene Pietropaoli, Research Fellow in Business & Human Rights, British Institute of International and Comparative Law.
