“From Inequality to Justice – Law and Ethics of AI Technology”

June 16 – June 17

Starts at 9:00 a.m. on June 16 and ends at 2:30 p.m. on June 17

How should we approach the ethics of AI and technology? In the current digital landscape, what are the leading questions we need to address to ensure that technology is developed and created with privacy, safety, and ethics in mind? How do we address these issues through code, law, and policy?

This two-day, multi-disciplinary conference hosted by the Law & Technology Institute at Dalhousie University and sponsored by the Dalhousie Next Wave Fund brings together leading scholars working in the areas of technology, artificial intelligence and bias, privacy, data and surveillance, and online harm. The conference’s primary focus is on the impacts of technology on equality-seeking communities who are disproportionately negatively affected by the harmful aspects of new technologies.
