Dr. Inge Graef and dr. Cédric Argenton will reflect on selected key aspects of the legislative proposal, including the definition of gatekeepers, the list of obligations and prohibitions, the enforcement procedure and the relationship with EU competition law.

TILT seminar: Towards fair, transparent & accountable AI in Europe

  • 16:00 pm
  • Online

Artificial intelligence and machine learning have become an integral part of our daily lives. Humans and algorithms are very different in the way they make decisions. Unfortunately, the legal tools available (e.g. data protection and non-discrimination law) were designed to govern humans, not artificial systems, and thus fail to protect us against novel risks. In this TILT seminar, Sandra Wachter will examine regulatory frameworks that are ill-equipped to keep biased algorithms in check. She will shed light what can be done from a regulatory perspective to prevent biased, discriminatory, unintended, or socially undesirable outcomes. Merel Noorman will moderate the session.
