Algorithmic Discrimination and Decolonisation: Regulation and Design

This interdisciplinary and international panel of experts from law and the humanities and the field of STEM will examine and discuss a major EU report recently published on Algorithmic Discrimination in Europe and how its key findings speak to the concept of decolonisation. Critical themes and cutting-edge issues of public interest explored will include: the implications of AI-based systems on human rights and society more broadly; whether the current legal regimes to ensure against unfair discrimination are fit for purpose; the EU’s proposed regulatory framework on AI; the critical discourse to date on the decolonisation of AI; and what frameworks and strategies may be applied in order to adequately and effectively address the problem of algorithmic discrimination.
