In April, FHI’s Assistant Director Dr. Niel Bowerman gave oral evidence in the “Hearing on legal and ethical aspects of robotics and artificial intelligence.”
The public hearing was held by the JURI Committee, the legal affairs committee of the European Parliament.
Dr. Bowerman gave evidence to the ethics of artificial intelligence, emphasising that Europe could help harness the positives and mitigate the potential negative impacts of new technologies from artificial intelligence. Slides from his presentation are available here.
Dr. Bowerman said as part of his presentation, “The EU should keep a broadly global view in its approach on artificial intelligence. It is possible that some AI advances will be destabilising and that some nations may not adapt well. The EU can lay out frameworks which favour stability, wellbeing and economic advance.”
