The cluster on AI & Neurotechnology (AIN) investigates the impact of technology on moral and legal responsibility and accountability. It focuses on technologies that can generate “responsibility gaps” by undermining human agency and action control. These range from (semi-)autonomous intelligent systems (self-driving cars, robots, decision support systems, automated weapon systems,) to neurotechnology applied to brain recording (BCI, neuroimaging)) and brain stimulation (invasive and non-invasive).
We aim to organize an (online) meeting with representatives of various scientific disciplines (CNS, AI, Law, Philosophy), as part of a general LACS conference.
The AIN cluster organizes a “brown bag” meeting on a bi-monthly basis, typically on Tuesdays at 12-13 CET (on Zoom). The BB meeting is meant as an informal 1 hour meeting in which researchers can give a short (15 minutes) presentation on a topic or paper and discuss it with and interdisciplinary audience. Scholars interested in attending the BB meetings and/or present are welcome to contact Alice Giannini [email@example.com].
Scholars working on problems of AI, neurotechnology and law from an interdisciplinary perspective are welcome to contact Pim [firstname.lastname@example.org], Giulio Mecacci [email@example.com] and Alice Giannini [firstname.lastname@example.org] to join the cluster.
