The Faculty of Law of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the Kalliopi Koufa Foundation for the Promotion of International and Human Rights Law, with the support of the European Society of International Law, are organizing a colloquium on Artificial Intelligence and Normative Challenges: International and Comparative Legal Perspectives.

The colloquium will take place on 1-2 April 2021, in Thessaloniki, Greece, or in a hybrid form/as a webinar, depending on the evolution of the current pandemic.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) – both in its current narrow form and even more in its potential future forms (such as General and Super Intelligence) – has raised concerns as well as expectations. Its actual and potential consequences are ever-expanding and apply to almost every facet of human life at the collective and individual levels: From the use of mobile phones and social media to autonomous weapons, from digitalization of knowledge and information to patent-eligibility for AI innovations, unexpected, until recently, philosophical, ontological, political and legal issues arise.

The goal of the colloquium is to explore the impact of AI on various areas of human conduct and the response of law generally, and particularly of international law, thereto, including responsibility, liability, culpability in the age of AI, AI and legal personhood, Ai and intellectual property, human rights, jus ad bellum, jus in bello and AI.
