Also this year, in the months of October, November and December 2021, a cycle of seminars on "Artificial Intelligence and Law" will be held ib Bologna, organized by the School of Law and the Higher School of Legal Studies of Bologna and coordinated by Prof. Ruffolo. The first seminar will be held on October 7, 2021, from 3pm to 5pm.
The seminars aims to introduce the logic and specific issues of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and legal mediation, placing itself in an ideal continuation with the more general seminars held last year (whose contents are published in the volume "XXVI Lezioni di Diritto dell’Intelligenza Artificiale", edited by Ugo Ruffolo, Giappichelli, 2021). This edition of the cycle thus intends to deepen specific and sectoral issues of the subject, which is now about to become an independent discipline within the legal sciences.
During the cycle, multiple profiles of liability for A.I. will be analyzed, ranging from the more general problem of the relationship between liability (civil as criminal) and "electronic personhood", to the more specific issues of liability for algorithms, smart products, autonomous vehicles, intelligent medical devices and healthcare activities, especially in light of the recent proposal for an EU Regulation for an “Artificial Intelligence Act”. The problems of freedom, rights and responsibility with regard to platforms and the network will also be analyzed, as well as those relating to predictive justice and robotic decisions.
The cycle will be divided into twelve seminars which will be held in "mixed" mode, both in person and via Teams, and will take place on every Wednesday from October 6 to December 22, 2021, from 3pm to 5pm.
The speeches will be given by 36 professors from various universities, senior representatives of the judiciary, lawyers, entrepreneurs (IMA) as well as representatives from the world of media (QN, Corriere, RAI, UPA), the Authorities (GPDP, AGCOM, ARERA) and healthcare and senior corporate lawyers (Google, Uber, WindTre, J&J).
