Smart products, such as smart household appliances, smart health devices or highly automated vehicles, are increasingly finding their way into everyday life. These products raise a number of economic and legal challenges, e.g. regarding product development, consumer acceptance, data privacy and data security, liability and regulation. The main aim of the ZiF research group at the University of Bielefeld is to investigate these topics in more detail, and the opening conference ‘Economic and legal challenges in the advent of smart products’ offers a platform for disciplinary and interdisciplinary exchange.
Mireille Hildebrandt will deliver a keynote on ‘AI Liability and the Ideologies of Traditional Law and Economics’.
The conference will be held in a hybrid format. For more information, click here.
