On April 21, 2021, the European Commission presented its long-awaited proposal for a regulation “laying down harmonized rules on Artificial Intelligence”, the so-called “Artificial Intelligence Act”. At the heart of the proposal is the idea of co-regulation through standardization to ensure that high-risk AI system's providers comply with the regulation. Against this backdrop, the presentation provides a critical analysis of the proposal, discussing in particular how the envisaged system of coregulation, standardization and certifica on could contribute to global governance of AI and address the manifold ethical and legal concerns of (high-risk) AI systems, especially regarding fundamental rights and safety.

16.45 – 17.00 CEST Break  

17.00-17.45 CEST - IP Protection for AI-Assisted Creations and Inventions  prof.Bernt Hugenholtz University of Amsterdam

This lecture discusses the state of the art of copyright and patent protection in Europe for AI-assisted outputs. The use of AI systems in the realms of culture, innovation and science has grown spectacularly in recent years and will continue to do so in the years to come. AI systems are being used to generate a wide diverse literary and artistic content, including translations, poems, musical compositions, computer programs, and even paintings. Likewise, a wide variety of innovative and inventive activity relies on AI systems for its development and deployment, from facial recognition to autonomous driving to drug discovery. The lecture examines whether, and to what extent, AI-assisted outputs are protected by European copyright law, related rights or patent law.  This lecture is based on a study funded by the European Commission: ‘Trends and Developments in Artificial Intelligence – Challenges to the Intellectual Property Rights Framework’, Shaping Europe’s digital future, SMART 2018/0052

Algorithmic decision-making technologies (colloquially referred to as “AI”) in industry, commerce and public service provision are giving rise to concerns about potential negative impacts on individuals (e.g. algorithmic discrimination bias) and the wider socio-economic fabric of society (e.g. displacement of jobs). With trust in the technology being cited as a key barrier toward moving AI pilot projects into operational use, both in the public and private sector, there is a growing push toward translating AI ethics principles into actionable practice. This talk will review current initiatives towards the development of AI governance frameworks, ethics and oversight related standards and regulations, and discuss the role each of these can play within a wider ecosystem of trustworthiness for the use of AI.

The European Commission is currently considering reviewing the Database Directive as part of its forthcoming Data Act. This initiative is prompted by the recent huge increase in data generation, use and reuse, including machine-generated data, AI and the so-called Internet of Things. Because of its protection of collections of data especially by the sui generis right and technological developments in this new ‘data economy’ age, the Database directive may need to be amended to take these developments into account. This lecture examines the current statutory and case law on the directive in the light of these new developments to find that out.

10.45 – 11.30 CEST - Contracting for an Artificial Intelligence (AI) project Giacomo Lusardi DLA Piper

The potential benefits of implementing Artificial Intelligence (AI) within businesses and legaltech projects can be significant and even transformative. Nonetheless, the use of AI can give rise to a number of novel issues that, if not properly managed, could create some significant concerns. In particular, contracts should be carefully drafted and negotiated in order to minimise risks and ensure a smooth relationship between all the players involved.

11.30 – 12.15 CEST - Adapting Product Liability to the Digital Age – the challenges of AI Prof. Dr. Christian Twigg-Flesner Warwick Law School, UK

The digital era and the increasing deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) raises new and important liability questions which need to be addressed. Product Liability systems are largely based on the paradigm of manufactured items supplied along a linear distribution chain which reach the end-user at a single, defined, point in time. Digitalisation and AI mean that there are more complex distribution links for different elements (physical items, software/digital content, data and AI itself), many of which are subject to updates and continuous development. This lecture will explore some of these challenges.

How to use data from variety of sources to legally and effectively create robust algorithmic solutions? In ‘the age of big data’ it’s impossible to develop or maintain a data driven solution without an appropriate data acquisition and management process.

Cloud computing has grown in popularity in recent years, yet it is poorly understood by many users.  Service contracts do not always cover all risks for the user, including insolvencies of service providers, which are an acknowledged risk that will be difficult to resolve.  This lecture will begin with a brief overview of cloud computing and its uses before focusing on what the risks are for users and how an insolvency of a service provider will impact on service users.  The lecture will also contain some brief insights into how users can protect themselves and how this area can be better regulated.

 

15.30 – 16.15 CEST - Contracting for cloud services – the U.S. perspective Michael Baumert Technology Transactions & Privacy Attorney Barnes & Thornburg LLP

Michał Baumert will introduce the cloud computing technology, discuss warranties, indemnities and limitations of liability, and other frequently reoccurring themes in today’s cloud contracts.

Graduates' recommendation
Aleksandra Pietraszewska

I highly recommend participation in "The IT/AI Winter Law School" - both for lawyers who are just starting their adventure with this field of law, as well as for long-term specialists in this matter. 

It is remarkable that the program covered not only the legal aspects related to new technologies, but also a comparison of different legal systems, which resulted in looking at this area much wider. 

The participation turned out to be a bull's eye!

IT/AI Winter Law School - It was a great time with the opportunity to discuss legal issues concerning IT contracts, software and database protection, drawing up license agreements under different jurisdictions, legal aspects of Cloud Computing/ SaaS/ ASP, smart contracts and many others! I have a unique opportunity to verify my reflections with lawyers representing various national legal systems.

I found IT /AI Winter Law School really useful and practical. One of the most engaging courses I have ever attended. All lecturers were very knowledgeable and offered valuable information and tips. We do not often have the opportunity to broaden our knowledge of the legal protection of AI projects in foreign countries, including in particular in Japan or the United States. I enjoyed every minute of lectures, especially the lecture given by prof. Claudia Sandei from University of Padova about blockchain and smart contracts. I wish I had such lectures during my university years

The IT/AI was a valuable experience to discover the new challenges and opportunities for the legal sector arising from the technology development in the space of AI, blockchain, database, smart factories and other IT similar topics. I enjoyed that the lectures were coming from all over the world offering a different view for similar issues which was useful to develop a critical comparative view on the topics. I recommend the school to all the IT legal professionals.
