Presentation of AI-Regulation.com at MIAI meeting
AI-Regulation.com is pleased to open its website at the MIAI meeting on February, 13 2020.
AI-Regulation.com is the work of the MIAI’s Chair “Legal and Regulatory Implications of Artificial Intelligence”. Its work will focus on 8 focus areas:
AI Governance and Regulation.
This cross-sectional field of research enables analysis
of how appropriate existing AI law is (e.g., the RGPD) and what AI governance might
resemble in the future. Research focuses on issues such as data and privacy protection
– among other human rights – transparency, the audibility of AI systems,
accountability/liability and oversight/control, and the fight against bias and
Facial recognition techniques can be used in both the
private and public spheres to perform multiple functions: authentication,
identification, surveillance, emotion recognition, etc. They involve the
processing of particularly sensitive biometric data. How should existing rules
be interpreted to mitigate the risks to our freedoms? What new rules should be
Vocal assistants and Chatbots
Alexa, Siri, Cortana, chatbots… The rise of PDA’s is
profoundly transforming our environment. This line of research aims to study
how these technologies are intruding on our private lives in order to identify legal
ramifications: technological bias, cybersecurity, civil liberties, contracts,
Smart cities, smart homes and IoTs.
The development of connected devices has led some
people to talk about “smart” houses or cities. While these objects may
allow us to envision a more efficient management of resources and
infrastructure, which is also better tailored to our needs, the stakes are high
when it comes to respect for privacy, the protection of data and intellectual
property and security. How can responsible use of IoTs be promoted?
Data manipulation, AI and democracy.
From deepfakes to interference in electoral processes,
through disinformation campaigns or manipulation for political, economic or
commercial purposes, this axis aims to analyze how AI can manipulate humans as
well as how to develop the concept of “cognitive security”.
Health, AI and transhumanism
AI is already precious in the health/medical sectors
and tomorrow may even be able to satisfy our most intimate desires. But our health
data is particularly sensitive… the protection of this data, inside or
outside health data hubs, and the way AI uses it is becoming a vital issue for
society, just like transhumanism.
Connected and autonomous vehicles.
Soon we will be simple guests in our own vehicles.
They will be better able than we are to manage the tasks of driving, planning routes
… judging trajectories. So, with connected cars will come new legal and
ethical issues of liability and personal data collection, not to mention the prospect
of having your car hacked?
