A future of ‘algorithmic warfare’? Human agency and the rule of law in the age of artificial intelligence

26 November, 2020 @ 4:00 pm

On Thursday 26 November, the T.M.C. Asser Instituut will host its Sixth Annual T.M.C. Asser Lecture. We are delighted to welcome Professor Andrew Murray who will join us online to deliver his lecture ‘Almost human: law and human agency in the time of artificial intelligence.’ Register now to attend this highly relevant and thought-provoking event.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is all around us: from the smartphones in our hands to drone strikes thousands of miles away. While this technology has many benefits such as simplifying complex data and making daily tasks easier, it also has dangerous implications. How and why does the rise of AI threaten the rule of law and what kind of regulatory frameworks are needed to manage this omnipresent technology? Professor Andrew Murray will address these questions and more at the online T.M.C. Asser Sixth Annual Lecture on 26 November at 16.00 CET.

Prof. Murray is a leading thinker on information technology law and regulation, who focuses on regulatory design within Cyberspace and on the protection and the promotion of Human Rights within the digital environment. He is a Professor of Law and Deputy Head of the Department of Law at the London School of Economics where he researches and teaches in the fields of Internet and new media law, including the laws of digital surveillance and digital privacy. In 2018/19 prof. Murray was the specialist advisor to the British House of Lords Communications Committee inquiry ‘Regulating in a Digital World’.
