Diver and Hildebrandt spoke at last week’s virtual breakfast event on ‘digital-ready lawmaking & ethics’, hosted by the EU Commission’s Legal Interoperability team, who are working on the ‘Better legislation for smoother implementation’ project. The discussion included numerous experts from various domains, and considered the cross-over between law and ethics, and how this complicates questions of digital-ready laws and digital-ready law-making. What ethical conditions are necessary for the development of laws, and how do technologies reflexively inform our answer to this question? And what impact might the provisions on high-risk AI in the EU’s proposed AI Act have in this context?
Key takeaways and a recording of the event are available here.
