The Asia-Pacific Europe Law Institutes Alliance (APELIA) Conference 2021
We have been captivated by Alpha-Go, experiencing driverless cars, considered smart contracts, tempted by crypto currencies, relying on the use of AI robotics in production, distribution, and product delivery; most importantly we are witnessing, with relief, its targeted application in the development of new vaccines during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, AI is also challenging scientific, ethical, legal, and regulatory norms. Where are we now and where are we heading as regards AI technologies? Who is responsible for AI’s applications? How do we eliminate AI bias? How do we deal with cross-border data flows? What legal status may be most beneficial for stakeholders? Although initiatives on AI are being suggested and promoted by national and international actors, there is still a long way to go to reach a consensus on AI under the combined effect of a technological revolution and international political and trade arm wrestling.
With contribution from scholars of prominent law institutes in Asia-Pacific and Europe, as well as policymakers, judges, AI scientists and entrepreneurs, this multidisciplinary conference examined and debated those challenges against an international context.
