Winter Conference 2024 Workshop

Transparency Issues from a Legal and Ethical Perspective

AI – and especially the more advanced AI – has said to lack transparency, which may bring about challenges in the field AI is used – ranging from the financial sector and the educational one to the medical field and the artistic world. While each of these domains are faced with legal and ethical challenges due to this lack of transparency, the notion transparency is a multi-faceted notion, which means that its meaning may differ depending on the context.

In this workshop, we will discuss the lack of transparency – as contextualised in your project – stemming from the use of AI, and how this creates hurdles from a legal and ethical perspective. Further, participants are encouraged to discuss solutions to overcome these legal and ethical obstacles. Thus, this workshop aims to bring together participants with varied backgrounds to achieve a broad understanding of legal and ethical challenges due to a lack of AI transparency.

Topic/Goals of the Workshop

Each participant is expected to discuss how transparency – as situated in your project – may be hampered and the legal and ethical concerns resulting from this lack of transparency. Depending on the stage of your project, you may also wish to discuss solutions to overcome this transparency deficit.

After the presentations, we will have a roundtable discussion, where we take a step back to look at the broader picture and explore – amongst others – the common denominators in our projects.

The anonymised discussions and conclusions may be used to author a potential paper.

Submission Details

Potential participants will be required to submit an abstract, which describes the transparency concerns from a legal and ethical perspective in the project. The abstract should be no longer than 250 words (including references, if any).

Abstracts should be e-mailed to sarah.de_heer@jur.lu.se no later than Friday 2 February.
