#Law Lecture: #Data-Driven Duties in the Development of Artificial Intelligence #AI | International Guest Speaker, Prof. Frank Pasquale | July 17 | Free Reg, Limited Places Please join the QUT Faculty of Law for a special event with Professor Frank Pasquale, a leading international expert in the global #algorithmic #accountability movement. . Corporations will increasingly attempt to substitute artificial intelligence & #robotics for human labor. This evolution will create novel situations for #tort law to address. However, tort will only be one of several types of law at play in the deployment of AI. #Regulators will try to forestall problems by setting standards, and corporate lawyers will attempt to deflect liability via contractual disclaimers and exculpatory clauses. . The interplay of #tort, #contract, and #regulation will not just allocate responsibility ex post, spreading the costs of accidents among those developing and deploying AI, their insurers, and those they harm. . This matrix of legal rules will also deeply influence the development of AI, including the industrial organization of firms and capital’s and labor’s relative share of productivity and knowledge gains. This talk begins by describing torts that may arise thanks to the deployment of AI and robotics (and some which have already arisen). The focus is on one particular type of failing: the use of inaccurate or inappropriate data in training sets used for machine learning. Inspired by common analogies of algorithms to recipes, I explore the degree to which patterns of liability for spoiled or poisonous food may also inform our eventual treatment of inaccurate or inappropriate data in AI systems. Health privacy regulation also provides important lessons for assuring the appropriateness and quality of data used in patient care, randomized trials, and observational research. The history of both health data and food regulation is instructive: egregious failures not only give rise to tort liability, but also catalyze regulatory commitments to prevent the problems which sparked that liability, which in turn helped create new standards of care. .
