Asser’s First Winter Academy on Artificial Intelligence and International LawPublished 11 April 2018
The Asser Institute in The Hague in collaboration with a number of partners will launch its first Winter Academy on Artificial Intelligence and International Law early 2019. Expert academic speakers will be offering perspectives on primarily legal but also ethical and technical aspects. The Winter Academy will provide a platform to engage in in-depth critical discussions on the conceptual and policy implications of AI for the international legal order.
For this first edition, the Winter Academy will include general sessions on legal and theoretical perspectives on AI (including on legal personality, collective agency, human control, responsibility), real-life case studies, and thematic sessions focusing on autonomous weapons systems and other uses of AI in the military as a case study, exploring issues of international humanitarian law, international criminal law, and other fields of international law in this context.
