Save the date: KU Leuven AI Summer School

We are glad to announce the launch of a Summer School on the “Law, Ethics and Policy of Artificial Intelligence” from 28 June to 3 July 2021.

The Summer School aims to offer a comprehensive overview of the various legal, ethical and policy-related issues around Artificial Intelligence (AI) and algorithm-driven processes more broadly. As these technologies have a growing impact on all domains of our lives, it becomes increasingly important to map, understand and assess the challenges and opportunities they raise. This requires an interdisciplinary approach, which is why the Summer School secured a collaboration across faculties and departments. The programme's goal is to offer participants the latest insights on AI from various perspectives, and in particular the fields of law, ethics and policy. 

The lectures will be provided by renowned academics, policy-makers and practitioners, allowing participants to grasp not only the theoretical but also the practical implications of the use of AI in these fields. While the programme’s primary focus concernsthe European Union, attention will also be given to AI governance initiatives beyond the EU.

The Summer School’s main intended audience concerns post-graduate and PhD students from various disciplines, but the programme is also open to other researchers, policy analysts, lawyers and legal experts, civil servants, members of civil society organisations, AI practitioners, and other professionals with an interest in broadening their understanding of AI and its impact on society. 

Participants will receive a certificate of attendance with the equivalence of 2 ECTS credits. 

The Summer School is scheduled to take place on campus at the premises of the KU Leuven Faculty of Law, yet an online alternative is also being prepared should the developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic deteriorate.
