2nd Annual Surrey Workshop on Regulating AI: They Took Our White-Collar Jobs

About the 2019 Workshop -- 21-22 March (2019)

Artificial intelligence (AI) is fundamentally changing the way we do business and adjudicate disputes. From document review to predicting case outcomes to chatbots providing rudimentary legal advice, AI is changing the legal profession operates and the way we govern ourselves by law. How will AI change the practice of law and other professional services like accounting and consulting? How will it change the court system and the way we adjudicate disputes?

The 2nd Annual Workshop on the Regulation of Artificial Intelligence will explore questions like these. The workshop will adopt an interdisciplinary focus, encouraging innovative theoretical and technical approaches as well as concrete and practical legal and regulatory solutions. Topics to be explored include:

- AI and the legal profession (automation of legal work)

- AI as adjudicator (legal authority, legal reasoning and AI)

- AI and legal prediction

- AI and accounting, insurance, consulting and other professional services

- AI and patents

- AI and government & public discourse

To submit an abstract for consideration, please see the Call for Abstracts above.

Space is limited, so please RSVP by 1 March 2019.
