Conference on the "Legal and Technical challenges of large generative ai models"

Frederik Zuiderveen borgesius on large generative AI models and non-Discrimination Law

On July 4 and 5, a conference on “Legal and technical Challenges of Large Generative AI Models (LGAIMs)” takes place at the UN headquarters in Geneva. Organised by Philipp Hacker (European New School of Digital Studies, European University Viadrina, Germany) and Sarah Hammer (University of Pennsylvania Law School, USA), the conference hosts a well-selected variety of speakers from many reputable institutions.

During different sessions, the scholars discuss the technical,
legal, regulatory and social implications of recent advances in generative AI systems. These systems include for instance ChatGPT, GPT-4 or Stable Diffusion, all highly impacting our communication, work and creativity. Their enormous potential but also significant risks such as opacity, biases or fake news will
be discussed.

DLS researcher Frederik Zuiderveen Borgesius (Radbound University Nijmegen) is invited as one of the speakers. Frederik is professor of ICT and Law and associated with the interdisciplinary Hub for Security, Privacy and Data Governance. He has a special interest in discrimination in the context of new technologies. At the conference, he will speak on the topic of LGAIMs and Non-Discrimination Law.

The conference is sponsored by the Dieter Schwarz Stiftung. The conference will take place in person but a hybrid participation via a live stream is possible. For more information and registration, visit here.
