Workshop about the EU regulation on Artificial Intelligence

The Bavarian AI Council, together with the Würzburg Research Center RobotRecht, the Würzburg Center for the Social Implications of Artificial Intelligence (SOCAI), the Würzburg Center for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science (CAIDAS) and the Bavarian Research Institute for Digital Transformation (bidt), is organising a workshop on the new EU regulation on artificial intelligence on April 1st and 2nd at the "Alte Universität" in Würzburg and cordially invites all interested persons.

Artificial intelligence has been occupying mankind since the 1950s and in the last twenty years automated systems have made great progress and become part of our everyday life. The way a website is found on the internet is not decided by a human, but by an algorithm. Fully automated cars will gradually start driving on Germany's roads and there are already a large number of devices in people's homes which make algorithm-based decisions and thus have an influence on our lives.

The European Commission's proposal for a law on artificial intelligence represents the first legal framework for artificial intelligence worldwide and has therefore generated a great deal of interest. Beginning with the basics of artificial intelligence, the aim of the workshop is to present individual key points of the draft regulation and review these in a discussion.

The event will be held as hybrid. Participants on site are welcome. Please notify Nicolas.Kutschera(at)uni-wuerzburg.de of your intention to attend. Please note that 3G applies for presence participants. A zoom link will be provided on demand until March 31st .
