Generative AI: Legal Challenges
On April 17th, the Director of AI-Regulation Chair, Professor Theodore Christakis, has been invited by the Privacy Symposium, the Italian Institute for Privacy and Google Safety Engineering Center to give a speech on ‘The Future of Generative AI and its Challenges and Opportunities for Privacy’ in front of a group of 40 experts and authorities, during a conversation dinner in Venise.
The use of Generative AI entails risks on how the users’ personal information are used and stored. The release of ChatGPT has shown us the powerful capabilities of so-called generative AI. The European Union is actually challenging the use of chatbots. By blocking access to the ChatGPT conversational agent from Friday 31 March, Italy is being seen as a pioneer in the European Union.
The discussion will explore the following questions :
- What are the principles of responsible GAI development?
- How can we mitigate the risks of GAI while addressing social and scientific concerns?
- How can academics, civil society, regulators, policymakers and organizations work together to tackle this collective-action problem?
Professor Theodore Christakis will present the main issues from an academic perspective while Guido Scorza will present the Italian Data Protection Authority perspective. Giorgia Albetino (Google) will give the industry’s perspective and Massimiliano Masnada (Hogan Lovells) will focus on the main issues from the practitioners’ perspective.
The event will be chaired by Sébastien Ziegler (Privacy Symposium and IoT Forum) and Luca Bolognini (ICT Legal Consulting).
