Regulating Artificial Intelligence: A True Team Effort

Artificial intelligence increasingly determines our everyday life. In order to do justice to AI technologies and their regulation, it is necessary to look at legal, economic, social and anthropological contexts in equal measure. As part of the Mercator Lectures for AI in the Human Context series, Dr. Olivia Erdélyi, in her talk on "Regulating Artificial Intelligence: A True Team Effort", will address the importance of interdisciplinary and multi-stakeholder cooperation in AI regulation.Dr. Olivia Erdélyi, Senior Lecturer at the University of Canterbury and international expert on AI ethics and policy with a multidisciplinary background in AI, economics, law, and political science, has been researching and teaching at the University of Bonn since October 2022 as the first Mercator Visiting Professor for AI in the Human Context. Her talk on November 04, 2022 kicks off the lecture series and programmatically focuses on collaboration: which demands and desires clash in the development and implementation of AI regulation?  How can communication between disciplines and between different stakeholders succeed? What is the role of international cooperation and transnational consistency? How straightforward is the practical implementation of AI regulatory requirements? In these and other questions, AI does not stand alone, but is one of many examples in the history of technological innovation and its impact on our society.  Only when AI technologies are understood as a nexus of different perspectives can we adequatly address its challenges.

Desirable Digitalisation: Rethinking AI for Just and Sustainable Futures

The project "Desirable Digitization: Rethinking AI for Just and Sustainable Futures" is a joint research program of the Universities of Cambridge and Bonn, funded by Stiftung Mercator. It explores how AI (artificial intelligence) and other digital technologies are influenced by concepts of the human and how they can be designed to be responsible, socially just and ecologically sustainable.
