Are robots reasonable? Should the law discriminate between AI and human behaviour or is a radical rethink required?
Featuring the internationally renowned Professor Ryan Abbott, Professor of Law and Health Sciences at the University of Surrey School of Law, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and author of The Reasonable Robot: Artificial Intelligence and the Law.
Ryan will be interviewed by Professor Jeannie Marie Paterson, co-director of CAIDE and through leader in the field of AI, Law and fairness.
Does our antiquated legal framework constrain inventive AI. Should AI be allowed to invent? Ryan argues that the law should not discriminate between AI and human behaviour and proposes a new legal principle aims to improve human well-being.Join this discussion jointly presented by Centre for Artifical Intelligence and Digital Ethics (CAIDE) and the Australian Society for Computers and Law (AUSCL)
After years of aged care being run by private for-profit companies, the residential aged care sector in Australia has not achieved better outcomes in terms of quality of care or prices. Why didn’t competition work in aged care? Using data never before available, this talk summarises our research investigating to what extent greater market competition in residential aged care is associated with higher quality of care and better price. The talk will also compare the performance of for-profit vs not-for-profit and public-owned aged care facilities.
This regularly held colloquium will showcase our projects and researchers. This is a forum that encourages discussion on how research insights should inform policy and practice. More information on the series is available here.
