The leaps in AI innovation raise ethical, legal, regulatory, and policy questions regarding what should be regulated, legislated and how it should be done. From the perspective of law, the prospects of AI rattles settled principles has and have necessitated arguments about rethinking approaches to regulations. The role of regulation in creating the environment for AI to flourish has therefore become timely as various countries and regions are beginning to draft the rules for AI. However, the challenges remain as to what to regulate, legislate and how to go about it.
Whilst capitalising on the benefits of AI technologies, the new risks arising from their use and the complexities they produce cannot be ignored. There are concerns that some uses of AI could damage our physical and mental health, infringe on the privacy of individuals, and undermine human and consumer rights. Public trust in AI will be undermined unless these risks, and wider concerns about the potentials for bias and discrimination, are addressed.
This workshop aims to propose strategies for AI regulations and legislations that are consistent with the pro-innovative stance of several nations, especially the UK. This workshop will host paper presentations exploring the potentials, flaws, and the risks of AI vis-à-vis regulations of AI across but not limited to the following themes:
- AI and intellectual property,
- AI and corporate governance,
- AI, liability, and safety,
- AI and data protection and governance.
- AI and human right
- AI in health care
