AI, Ethics and the Human

The Leverhulme Interdisciplinary Network on Algorithmic Solutions (LINAS) Postgraduate Conference

May 10, 2023
Room OG.0074, Lanyon Building, Queen's University Belfast
09:00 - 17:00

The LINAS conference on ‘AI, Ethics and the Human’ is taking place Queen's University Belfast on 10 May 2023, with keynote speaker Professor Matthias Leese.

This conference is interdisciplinary in nature.

Within the social sciences, we explore such questions as: what does this mean for human agency? How are we to understand accountability without transparency in the face of ‘black box’ algorithms? And what does this mean for human rights law?

Within science and engineering, we ask: how can we design fair algorithmic solutions? And how can we work transparently? We want to bring together legal scholars, social scientists, physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists and engineers to collaborate on these urgent issues.

This is a student-led conference that is primarily aimed at PhD and early career researchers, and we welcome presentations from all disciplines in the area of AI ethics, with a special interest in (but not limited to):

• Data quality

• Legal regulation of AI

• Algorithmic accountability

• Fairness in algorithmic systems

• Privacy, security and surveillance

• Science, governability and digital society

• AI, social justice and public decision-making

LINAS wishes to thank Professor Matthias Leese for his appearance as keynote speaker at this year's conference.

Matthias Leese is Assistant Professor for Technology and Governance at the Department of Humanities, Social and Political Sciences, ETH Zurich. His research is interested in the effects of digital technologies on social order. It pays specific attention to security organisations and their rationales and practices that are co-constituted between the technological and the social.
