Brown Bag Lunch Presentation / The Future We Build: Potential Pathways of Generative AI

Veranstaltung |

On Monday, June 5th, Professor Sandra Wachter will be joining us for two special events. Professor Wachter is Professor of Technology and Regulation at the Oxford Internet Institute at the University of Oxford where she focuses on examining the legal and ethical ramifications of AI, Big Data, and robotics, alongside internet and platform regulation.

  • Brown Bag Lunch Presentation (1:00 - 2:00 pm): Professor Wachter will be presenting on her paper, “The Theory of Artificial Immutability: Protecting Algorithmic Groups under Anti-Discrimination Law” at the TUM Think Tank from 1:00 - 2:00 pm. In her presentation, Professor Wachter will discuss the rise in the use of artificial intelligence for making pivotal decisions, such as the success of a job application or of a university admission. In order to support these decisions, AI often categorizes individuals into groups that have not been previously used by humans. These algorithmic groups are not covered by non-discrimination law, which is an important aspect that needs to be covered, as decisions based on these types of groupings can be harmful. This protection will be challenging as the European Court of Justice has historically been reluctant to extend the law to cover new groups.  She will present her argument on why algorithmic groups should be protected by non-discrimination law and will show how this could be achieved.
  • The Future We Build: Potential Pathways of Generative AI (17:30 - 19:00 pm): Professor Wachter will also take part in a panel discussion with members of our Generative AI Task Force; including: Professor Enkelejda Kasneci, Professor Urs Gasser, and Professor Alexander Pretschner. They will be discussing the current standings and the future of Generative AI. This event will also be hosted in the TUM Think Tank from 17:30 – 19:00 pm with a small reception.

You are invited to join us for both of these events in the TUM Think Tank in room 158. Please register for the event here.
