ILPC Seminar Series: How to Regulate High-Risk AI: The EU AI Act

This event launches the ILPC Seminar Series on AI and the Humanities: Transforming Society.

These seminars explore the societal impacts of AI-based technologies and systems and the role of the humanities and social sciences in providing key insights and enabling an open dialogue on these important and complex issues with the public.

This international and multi-disciplinary series brings together experts from across academia and focuses on topics of public interest addressing the theme of what it means to be human in a world being redefined by cutting-edge developments in AI and digital policymaking.

In this seminar, Professor Edwards will present and discuss her recent work on the EU AI Act in her role as Expert Legal Advisor to the Ada Lovelace Institute.

The Ada Lovelace Institute (Ada) was established by the Nuffield Foundation in 2018 and is an independent research and deliberative body with a mission to ensure data and AI work for people and society.
