Winchester Conference on Trust, Risk, Information and the Law 2017

Wednesday 3 May
Rooms 1 and 2, West Downs, West Downs Campus, University of Winchester, Romsey Road, Winchester, Hampshire SO22 5HT

​Artificial and De-Personalised Decision-Making: Machine-Learning, A.I. and Drones

The use of digital devices, Big Data and artificial intelligence to take decisions previously made by humans represents one of the biggest challenges of our age. Seldom has technology had as much potential to benefit humanity and at the same time, to disrupt it. By delegating decisions to machines, do we rid ourselves of bias or instead, codify it, and how should the law, regulation and practice respond to the opportunities and risks presented by A.I.

Our keynote speakers will be Professor Katie Atkinson, Head of Computer Science, University of Liverpool, an expert in artificial intelligence and its application to legal reasoning, and John McNamara, IBM Senior Inventor, who will speak on protecting trust in a world disrupted by machine learning.

Who should attend?

The conference is open to policy-makers, practitioners, academics and research students and in particular those working in law, computer-science, data science, information rights, privacy, compliance, statistics, law enforcement and justice, behavioural science and health & social care.

This is organised by the Centre for Information Rights. For more information about the centre, click here
