Digitisation and AI permeate close to all parts of our society, and legal matters are no exception. Our increasingly digital society faces new problems and demands concerning privacy, data protection, and information security, which have ethical and societal implications. Similarly, artificial intelligence deployed in commercial contexts, with smart systems and algorithmic-based decision-making, may cause harm to individuals, but the legal responsibilities are unclear.   

This seminar will address the ethical and legal aspects of digitisation and AI together with two invited experts working in the intersection of law, technology, and society. Their opening talks will be followed by a seminar discussion.

Presentation 1: Stanley Greenstein, “Predictive Modelling, Scoring and Fundamental Rights?
Presentation 2: Sandra Friberg, “Legal Challenges in the Digital Age
