Winter Academy on Artificial Intelligence and International LawDetails

T.M.C. Asser Instituut

In February 2019, the Asser Institute is offering a new Winter Academy on Artificial Intelligence and International Law. Over the course of one week, this innovative training programme will provide insights into the current and future issues raised by artificial intelligence from the perspective of international law.

Background
Artificial intelligence (AI) comes with many promises. It has the potential of providing for cognitive abilities going beyond human capacities, which could lead to significant scientific and societal progresses. For instance, complex algorithms that compile and analyse large data sets could contribute to more accurate and precise policy-making. At the same time, the use of technologies that display increasing degrees of autonomy brings in significant ethical, legal, and policy challenges. AI is disruptive to fundamental legal norms and concepts, as well as to systems of international governance. It challenges us to rethink a number of legal notions, and to develop analytical frameworks that fully grasp AI.

Programme
The Winter Academy will offer foundational knowledge on key issues at the interface of international law and artificial intelligence, and provide a platform for critical debate and engagement on emerging questions. The programme will be structured along five themes: Understanding AI, AI for good, AI and armed conflict, AI and responsibility, and AI governance.

The Winter Academy will include modules addressing both technical and legal aspects, and will alternate theoretical and more practical perspectives. The interactive training will feature over 20 sessions by high-level speakers and include panels, workshops, and a mini-hackathon.

 The following topics will be covered:

  • Definition of AI, current trends, prospective trajectories
  • Intelligence and moral judgment in humans and machines
  • Explainability and intelligibility of decision-making algorithms
  • Ethics of AI and value-sensitive design
  • Using AI to advance the UN Sustainable Development Goals
  • AI and human rights
  • AI and international humanitarian law
  • Autonomous weapons systems and human dignity
  • Human control over autonomous military technologies
  • AI and international criminal law
  • AI and state responsibility
  • AI and legal personality
  • Private standards regulation of AI
  • Geopolitics of AI
  • European governance of AI
  • International governance of AI

 

Objectives
Participants to the programme will:

  • Gain an understanding of the technical dimension of AI (through lectures, workshops, demonstrations)
  • Explore the philosophical and ethical underpinnings of AI
  • Acquire an in-depth understanding of the impact of AI on different fields of international law
  • Discuss opportunities and risks of using AI for international legal practice
  • Engage in debates on complex unresolved questions
  • Build on progressively acquired knowledge to identify the way forward
  • Be offered ample opportunities for networking

 

Target audience
The Winter Academy is designed for academics and professionals working on issues related to AI and international law. We invite participation from:

  • Researchers and advanced students (Master or PhD) in the fields of international law, political science, philosophy, or computer science
  • Policy analysts and legal advisers working on innovation and technology in public or private institutions
  • Industry professionals interested in the law and governance of AI
