Gori teaches at Winter ELSA Law School on New Technologies and Artificial Intelligence Law, Brussels (30 Jan 2023)
Postdoctoral researcher Gianmarco Gori has given a lecture ‘Introduction to Artificial Intelligence (and) Law’ to the students of the Winter ELSA Law School on New Technologies and Artificial Intelligence Law. In his lecture, Gori has stressed the need to look at the challenges currently posed by AI by adopting a historical perspective. In this light, he has illustrated a set of elements which recur in Western legal thought, such as the crises of legal information, the distrust of legal interpreters (e.g., breakfast jurisprudence), etc. Gori has examined how such problems, and the way in which they have been framed, constitute the background against which legal automation is conceptualised as a possible solution for the problems of law. In this perspective, Gori has discussed how different understandings of law and its problems have been articulated in the context of Jurimetrics, GOFAIL (Good Old-Fashioned AI and Law), and are now addressed under the contemporary data-driven paradigm.
