Online seminar: Private international law’s contribution to the regulation of Artificial Intelligence (AI): An EU perspective, 5 October


The Aberdeen Centre for Private International Law is organising a seminar as part of their ‘Crossroads in Private International Law’ webinar series on : Private international law’s contribution to the regulation of Artificial Intelligence (AI): An EU perspective.

The seminar will take place on 5 October 2022, 16:00 – 17:30 UK time.

SpeakerDr Michiel Poesen, Lecturer in Law, University of Aberdeen, School of Law

ModeratorTim Dornis, Professor of Private Law and Intellectual Property Law, Leibniz University, Hannover, Germany

Here is further information provided by the Centre:
In this webinar, we will bridge artificial intelligence (AI) and EU private international law, i.e. the body of rules that determine which country’s law applies to cross-border legal relationships involving private parties, such as businesses, consumers or employees.

To that aim, we will start by scrutinising the current legal framework for its capacity to deal with cross-border private law claims arising out of the application of AI systems. Then, we will evaluate the recent proposal of the European Parliament for a bespoke EU Regulation concerning civil liability for harm caused by AI, which included a novel rule of private international law.
Here, we will also reflect on the role private international law could play in the EU’s emerging regulatory policy for AI systems.
Attendance is free, but registration is mandatory.
