From 11-15 February 2019, the Asser Institute is offering a new Winter Academy on Artificial Intelligence and International Law. Over the course of one week, this innovative training programme provides insights into the current and future issues raised by artificial intelligence from the perspective of international law.

Speakers include Irakli Beridze (UNICRI Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics), Mary Ellen O'Connell (University of Notre Dame), Jeroen van den Hoven (TU Delft), and more.

The Winter Academy offers foundational knowledge on key issues at the interface of international law and artificial intelligence, and provides a platform for critical debate and engagement on emerging questions. The programme is structured along five themes: Understanding AI, AI for good, AI and armed conflict, AI and responsibility, and AI governance.

The Winter Academy includes modules addressing both technical and legal aspects, and alternates theoretical and more practical perspectives. The interactive training features over twenty sessions by high-level speakers and includes panels, workshops, and a mini-hackathon.

Artificial intelligence (AI) comes with many promises. It has the potential of providing for cognitive abilities going beyond human capacities, which could lead to significant scientific and societal progresses. For instance, complex algorithms that compile and analyse large data sets could contribute to more accurate and precise policy-making. At the same time, the use of technologies that display increasing degrees of autonomy brings in significant ethical, legal, and policy challenges. AI is disruptive to fundamental legal norms and concepts, as well as to systems of international governance. It challenges us to rethink a number of legal notions, and to develop analytical frameworks that fully grasp AI.
