Hildebrandt speaks at Düsseldorf AI Conference 2023 (20 June 2023)

Prof. Mireille Hildebrandt will speak at Düsseldorf AI Conference 2023 on “Chances and Challenges of AI-driven Decision-Making” held on 19-20 June 2023, organized by the Manchot Research Group “Decision-making with the help of Artificial Intelligence” and the Heine Center for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science (HEiCAD) both located at the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU).

The abstract of her contribution entitled “AI for better law: what could possibly go wrong?” reads as follows:

To deploy AI in law, we need to make certain assumptions about the computability of the law. For data-driven law (using machine learning) we probably need to frame law as a corpus of legal training data; for code-driven law (using programming languages to ‘render’ the law) we need to frame law as a closed system of rules or algorithms. This contribution will assess what safeguards must be in place to prevent such framing from becoming true, reminding us of Hannah Arend’s seminal insights at the end of The Human Condition, where she suggests that the problem is not whether behaviourism is true, but that it may become true.
