Symposium on AI and Society

(27-11-2023) Symposium on societal risks of AI

Over the past decade, concerns about the societal risks posed by AI systems have been steadily growing. AI systems have already been known to reinforce discriminatory biases, violate privacy, and manipulate public discourse. A wealth of technical work has been produced to assess and mitigate those risks, yet it is often based on simplistic assumptions of the role that AI plays in the real world.

The goal of this symposium is to tighten the link between technical viewpoints on the societal risks of AI and those from industry, law and policy. Hence, top experts in Belgium representing these diverse viewpoints, from within academia and without, will present their work and the challenges they face in addressing the societal risks of AI. Afterwards, they will participate in a panel discussion.

Location and time
