The leaps in AI innovation raise ethical, legal, regulatory, and policy questions regarding what should be regulated, legislated and how it should be done. From the perspective of law, the emergence of AI has unsettled established principles of law, necessitating re-evaluation of regulatory approaches. The role of regulation in creating the environment for AI to flourish has therefore become timely and as various countries and regions are beginning to develop regulatory frameworks for AI, it is crucial to consider the challenges associated with determining what should be regulated, legislated and the appropriate methods to achieve this.
Whilst capitalising on the benefits of AI technologies, the new risks arising from their use and the complexities they produce cannot be ignored. There are concerns that some uses of AI could damage our physical and mental health, infringe on the privacy of individuals, and undermine human and consumer rights. Public trust in AI will be undermined unless these risks, and wider concerns about the potentials for bias and discrimination, are addressed.
This workshop aims to propose strategies for AI regulations and legislations that are consistent with the pro-innovative stance of several nations, especially the UK. This workshop will host paper presentations exploring the potentials, flaws, and the risks of AI vis-à-vis regulations of AI across but not limited to the following themes:
- AI and intellectual property
- AI and corporate governance
- AI, liability, and safety
- AI and data protection and governance
- AI and human right
- AI in health care
