TRAINING CONTENT AND TARGET AUDIENCE

 

PRACTICAL INFORMATION

Learning objectives:

  • Gain awareness of the specific challenges presented by Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the context of civil liability.
  • Analyze and compare national and EU rules already in place.
  • Obtain knowledge of the EU legislation on the subject being prepared.

 

  Short description of the programme: 

  • AI has the immense potential to benefit our society but, along with this, we are faced with new risks of extensive and serious damages. 
  • One should also have in mind that AI is a broad concept, including several types of applications and systems with different levels of impact, exposure to the public and risks created. 
  • On the other hand, damages caused by AI can take place in the context of a contractual relationship (concerning, for instance, defective products) or outside any kind of previous relation with the injured party (tort law). 
  • It is arguable that the legal systems of tort law and contractual liability already in place, both on a national and European level, can provide for the adequate distribution of risks and guarantee fair compensation of damages for those entitled to it. 
  • All these particular challenges have led European Institutions to undertake several initiatives aimed for the harmonization of the rules on AI, including on civil liability (see, for instance, https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/better-regulation/have-your-say/initiatives/12979-Civil-liability-adapting-liability-rules-to-the-digital-age-and-artificial-intelligence_en ). 
  • This two-day seminar will include several presentations by international experts on the field followed by discussion on specific points between experts and participants.
