A multi-disciplinary approach to AI

On 27 April 2018, the Law Society hosted a global summit in partnership with Hogan Lovells on the subject of AI and legal ethics. The first panel of the event explored whether we can achieve a multi-disciplinary approach to AI, covering questions such as how we create the ability to have a cross sectoral/multi-disciplinary discussion of AI/legal ethics, how we develop common values across professions and specialisms, and whether there is a need for a shared taxonomy. The panel members were Professor Sofia Olhede at University College London, Rob McCargow at PwC, Dana-Denis Smith at Obelisk Support and Laura Robinson from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
