You are invited to join a webinar on  AI Ethics and Regulations in Central Asia organized by AIFC Academy of Law Kazakhstan.

Overview: Artificial intelligence (AI) is clearly emerging as one of the most transformational technologies in Central Asia. Automation and AI Blending continue to penetrate every industry sector and are delivering enormous benefits in the form of new business opportunities, automation of state functions, deeper customer insights, improved efficiency of services, and enhanced agility. However, despite an apparent agreement that AI should be ‘ethical’, there is debate about both what constitutes ‘ethical AI’ and which ethical requirements, technical standards and best practices are needed for its realization. Moreover, should Central Asia adopt a Generalized Strategy towards AI? Questions about regulation, what form it takes and who is responsible for governance are only just beginning to be answered in Central Asia. In this Second webinar of the series of Technology Law webinars, Ammar Younas will discuss the application of the law and ethics to AI. He will address the emerging issues in Central Asia such as privacy protection, nexus between freedom of speech and unemployment , responsibility & liability of Autonomous Systems, non-discrimination, ethical aspects of self-driving vehicles, autonomous weapons, quality-control procedures for AI systems, and transparency requirements for algorithmic decision making.
