Conference announcement: Algorithmic Bias and EU Non-Discrimination Policy

On 8 October, Prof. Dr. Ruth Janal cordially invites you to participate in a Zoom-Conference on Algorithmic Bias and EU Non-Discrimination Policy.

Please take note of the programme for further information.


The participation is free of charge. Please register by sending an email to the following email adress until Thursday, October 7th: ls-zivilrecht8@uni-bayreuth.de

Automated decision-making systems are increasingly used in all areas of life, including important areas such as employment, insurance, education and surveillance. This has led to vivid discussions among computer and social scientists concerning the fair and non-discriminatory application of such technologies. The EU Commission´s recent proposal for an "Artificial Intelligence Act" also addresses the topic of fairness and non-discrimination.

The conference brings together jurists from all over Europe to discuss the ramifications of algorithmic bias for the law. Topics covered include the importance of data (quality) for fair and non-discriminatory AI (Panel 1), the regulation of AI technology via existing non-discrimination law as well as the proposal for an AI-Act (Panel 2) and the significant enforcement challenges in the realm of algorithmic decision-making (Panel 3).
