Also this fall, a cycle of seminars on new technologies, Artificial Intelligence and law, coordinated by Prof. Ugo Ruffolo, will be held as part of the School of Law and the School of Legal Studies of the University of Bologna.

The seminars will survey the many issues of legal mediation related to the use of new technologies and Artificial Intelligence systems in different areas: from the liability issues posed by autonomous vehicles to the application of A.I. in sectors such as health and justice; from the effects on the world of work and business law to the impact of high-tech systems on privacy and data protection. Central importance will then be given, in this edition of the seminar series, to the peculiar issues of rights, freedoms and liabilities related to the world of platforms and the web, posed by today's widespread phenomena such as fake news, profiling and online advertising.

Placing itself in an ideal continuation with the editions of the past years, the seminar cycle presents itself as a dialogue between different knowledge, involving, over the course of twelve meetings, academics, representatives of the judiciary and Authorities, representatives of the world of health and publishing, as well as legal or top managers of relevant business realities.

The meetings of the series of seminars will be held every Tuesday from September 27, 2022 until December 20, 2022, in the time slot 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., at the “Sala Armi” of Palazzo Malvezzi (Via Zamboni, no. 22). There is, however, the possibility of remote participation for each meeting via Microsoft Teams, following the instructions indicated on the last page of the attached brochure.
