Law, Technology and Disruption Conference

Technological changes and innovations are inevitable and very much linked to the success of a country. However, new technologies may represent a destructive power or at least a disruptive power to the current legal system that requires responses from every country. The conference is organized with the purpose of identifying the fundamental challenges raised by new technologies in general and the specific challenges brought by five typical new technologies, namely: AI and big data, internet platforms, blockchain, biotech, and AR and VR. We are having prominent speakers around the world to discuss these issues from the same perspective: how the technology disrupts the legal system, and how we should respond in terms of better regulation. Specifically, the participants will discuss how a certain technology ‘disrupts’ the law and society, and how should our regulative framework as a whole respond and adapt.

On 20th March, Matthijs Maas and Hin-Yan Liu will be presenting their paper, "Solving for X?’ Towards a problem-finding framework to ground longterm governance strategies for artificial intelligence". Listen to the talk on March 20th from 00.29.00 below.

The conference is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
