Call: International Conference: Future Law, Ethics, and Smart Technologies

Call for Presentation Abstracts

International Conference: Future Law, Ethics, and Smart Technologies
February 20, 2020, 8 AM – 5 PM
Constitution Hall, Parliament of the Republic of Lithuania
(Building 1), Gedimino pr. 53
Vilnius, Lithuania

Deadline for submission of abstracts: November 30

While the unprecedented technological advances in information technologies, robotics, AI, and related fields in recent decades have had a number of positive effects in almost every area of human life, they have also brought significant concerns in how the rapidly growing development and utilization of smart technologies impinge on future law, ethics, and (legal) education. Some of the significant issues are, for example, machine bias in law, autonomous transportation and legal responsibility, the concept of legal personhood and AI machines, Big Data, autonomous weapons, the black box problem, machine/robot rights, and the future of (legal) education. This interdisciplinary conference aims to understand the mentioned issues more properly in their relation to the problem of how to regulate the development of smart technologies and robotics in order to increase the welfare of society without violating its fundamental values such as safety, security, and privacy.… read more. “Call: International Conference: Future Law, Ethics, and Smart Technologies”

Call: “AI and its Discontents” issue of Interdisciplinary Science Reviews

Artificial Intelligence and its Discontents
Call for Papers for a special issue of Interdisciplinary Science Reviews
(https://www.tandfonline.com/loi/yisr20)

Guest Editor: Colin Shunryu Garvey, Fellow, Human-Centered AI Institute, Stanford University

Deadline for abstracts: November 15, 2019

This is increasingly the Age of AI. Artificial Intelligence, the suite of technologies that make machines capable of performing tasks considered “intelligent” when performed by people, is colonizing an increasing number of domains, from Internet search and social media to the natural sciences and even criminal sentencing. AI may soon become ubiquitous, coextensive with civilization itself, a taken-for-granted feature of modernity like electricity or running water.

But this does not mean that all is well: AI has, and has always had, its discontents; those who doubt, question, challenge, reject, reform and otherwise reprise “AI” as it is practiced and promoted. With the hope of scaffolding deeper understandings of both the epochal transformations being wrought by AI technologies and the range of responses these changes, this special issue of Interdisciplinary Science Reviews will bring together reflections from practitioners, assessments from scientists in fields transformed by AI, and historically-informed accounts of AI and its critics, both past and present, in order to capture something of the significance of this historical moment for future generations.… read more. “Call: “AI and its Discontents” issue of Interdisciplinary Science Reviews”
