“The ethical and legal implications of generative AI chatbots”, June 7, 2023, at 15:30 at the premises of FPS BOSA and online.
Over the past few months, AI-enabled chatbots have become increasingly common, presenting a range of new opportunities and challenges that affect all domains of our lives. Citizens of all ages are increasingly relying on these systems to help them write texts, to look up for information, or even for companionship through so-called companion-chatbots. This may lead to strong influence or even manipulation of users. We believe it is crucial to raise awareness about the ethical and legal implications of these new technologies.
After a brief explanation of how generative AI-enabled chatbots – and more particularly companionship chatbots- work, we will have a multidisciplinary roundtable discussion to hear from engineers, lawyers, sociologists and others what the ethical and legal implications of these systems are. The roundtable will be followed by a Q&A with the participants, to encourage an open discussion on this topic, and propose ways forward on how society should deal with the new opportunities and challenges raised by AI-enabled chatbots.
The event will conclude with a small reception where participants can network and continue their discussions.
