Data protection/AI

Artificial Intelligence: Laws, Challenges and Opportunities

How can we responsibly develop artificial intelligence technologies and ensure strong legal and regulatory frameworks? How can we ensure that collected personal data are used with positive benefits by artificial intelligence technologies? What are the benefits and challenges AI systems can bring to our society?

About this course

Artificial intelligence has become the mainstream data-driven technologies. During these last years due to its ability to drive transformation across multiple sectors while the potential benefits of artificial intelligence technologies can be massive for growth and development  ‘there is no such thing as a technological silver bullet’.

Over the last decades, the concept of data protection has been provoked by technological innovation. With artificial intelligence technologies, it is no different.

How can we responsibly develop artificial intelligence technologies and ensure strong legal and regulatory frameworks?
How can we ensure that collected personal data are used with positive benefits by artificial intelligence technologies?
How can we make sure we are not setting an undesirable precedent for the future?
What are the benefits and challenges AI systems can bring to our society?

These are some of the questions we are going to tackle during this course with a particular focus on European policy-making and the European legal frameworks and proposals. We will pinpoint the challenges and opportunities posed by these new technologies and find clear methods to address such challenges as a pre-condition to develop an ecosystem of trust.

What you will learn

  • Become familiar with the concepts of artificial intelligence, high-risk artificial intelligence, use and re-use of data, data altruism;
  • Develop knowledge of relevant EU instruments. Including the General Data Protection Regulation, Data Governance Act, Regulation on a European Approach for Artificial Intelligence (proposal);
  • Discuss challenges and opportunities related to the deployment and use of artificial intelligence technologies.  Particularly in the areas of law enforcement, cybersecurity, and fundamental rights;
  • Understand the frictions between data protection provisions and the use of artificial intelligence;
  • Gain insights on how artificial intelligence has been harnessed. Or is intended to be harnessed in the government processes and for public services;
  • Become familiar with the risks and threats when using artificial intelligence technologies;
  • Develop an understanding of the potential risks and challenges new technologies like generative artificial intelligence pose to society;
  • Benefit directly from the insights of artificial intelligence policymakers and experts and benefit from networking opportunities during the online breaks;
  • Develop your international professional network in the field of artificial intelligence.

Course methodology and highlights

This course is open also to participants with less advanced knowledge on artificial intelligence and governance of data. This course therefore includes:

  • detailed explanations of the key concepts, principles, roles and responsibilities of artificial intelligence actors;
  • insights with practical examples based on thorough scientific research;
  • input and coaching on practical issues encountered by participants;
  • a highly interactive approach. The course structure will give you opportunities to ask questions and share experiences. During the dedicated Q&A sessions and online breakout rooms.

Read our recent blog on Protecting Fundamental Rights in the Age of AI by our experts Florina Pop and Laura Grant.

The first part of the course will zoom into the fundamental concepts related to artificial intelligence. In sessions where ‘policy meets law’, you will attain a clear overview of how the European legal frameworks, including new proposals, address the challenges of technological disruption and the increased use of artificial intelligence technologies in everyday life. You will explore how the European strategy for artificial intelligence ensures that it will be human-centric and trustworthy. You will understand how data can be made available for use and re-use in compliance with European principles and values, but also the roles of new actors (e.g., data sharing providers, operators, users, etc.) and their responsibilities in developing, deploying and using artificial intelligence. You will also understand how artificial intelligence impacts the European fundamental rights regime.

In the second part of the course, you will learn about the opportunities and challenges related to developing and implementing artificial intelligence technologies and the impact such deployment and use has on our rights and society. You will learn about how responsible artificial intelligence can enable new artificial technologies to develop in a safe and controlled environment, in addition to the challenges surrounding biases in artificial intelligence systems. You will learn how artificial intelligence and data can be used positively in the law enforcement sector.

You will also look at the threats landscape from a cybersecurity perspective and receive an overview of the new avenues.  And attack methods that the deployment and use of artificial intelligence will open. And the additional layer of protection needed to prevent such threats. You will learn to understand how new areas like generative artificial intelligence can impact ethical considerations.  In addition to the benefits and risks they pose.
