Significant progress has been made by researchers, industry and other stakeholders to develop tools and practices that help operationalize ethical principles for AI both in Europe and the rest of the world. At the same time, breakthroughs in machine learning, cognition and even in the field of quantum computing continue to accelerate. While this pace of innovation is enabling exponential progress in nearly every field of human endeavor, finding the optimal approach to rules and practices that fully encompass context, dignity, and human-centered intent is especially challenging.
Following the enthusiastic feedback on the first edition of the Data Science and Law Forum in September 2018, we are again gathering experts from the research community, civil society, policymaking and the legal practice to advance the dialogue on developing robust and responsible AI governance rules, and to promote early conversations on the state of quantum computing.

With the White Paper on AI published, the European Commission has taken a first step to sketch out the regulatory approach that could guide the responsible development and deployment of AI-based technologies in Europe. This expert panel takes a deeper look at the proposals.
The potential roll-out of FRT for police investigations varies across Europe. Participants will share perspectives on these developments and discuss – also in light of the European Commission’s White Paper on AI – technical issues, surveillance risks, opportunities and safeguards that must accompany its deployment.
Building and deploying responsible AI requires tools that help assess the impact of the envisioned application on diverse groups and solve value tensions that might occur. This interactive session dives into a civic use case of FRT to explore how tools – such as the assessment list developed by the European Commission’s High-Level Expert Group on AI – can be operationalized in engineering practices throughout the AI lifecycle.

Predictive judicial analytics hold the promise of increasing efficiency and fairness in the application of the law. This session explores the promises and pitfalls as well as potential consequences of legal change.
How should liability regimes be designed – and, where necessary, changed – to incorporate new value chains, challenges and risks posed by AI-based systems?
At the cusp of a quantum revolution, we have not yet fully considered the legal and social questions that it poses. This roundtable explores the policy challenges as well as potential norms for quantum technologies.
AI, augmented reality and other emerging technologies are raising new and profoundly important issues, including the ability of weapons to act autonomously. This session explores state- of-the-art views, existing policies, regulation in place, as well as laws for responsible and ethical use of AI by the military. Are best practices available? How do we prioritize in addressing these issues?
This conference will be divided into an opening plenary, a series of breakout sessions drilling into the vertical sectors and a final closing plenary. You can find more information on the agenda timings here. Sectors that will be debated at the event include:
Rue Montoyer 51, 1000 Brussels Belgium
