Research Professor on 'Interfacing Law and Technology' at Vrije Universiteit Brussels

After promising a rose garden in commercial and political communication, consumer choice, energy efficiency, car driving and medical research, artificial intelligence has reached the domain of law.

Will the transformation of legal text into digital data and the search for mathematical patterns transform the way we govern ourselves? Will predictive policing be succeeded by highly accurate prediction of case law, where machines outperform their human masters (the lawyers)? Will the ability to design self-executing code for regulatory regimes improve compliance and reform current thinking about legislation?

Mireille Hildebrandt, Research Professor on 'Interfacing Law and Technology' at Vrije Universiteit Brussels, will discuss these questions with special attention to the way this transformation may impact data protection law, its regulatory reach and the protection it offers.

Hosted by The Allens Hub for Technology, Law and Innovation at UNSW Sydney.
