This September, join us for our first international event series, connecting experts across borders to tackle the big questions in AI. In this virtual event series, we will explore how AI can transcend boundaries to help solve some of the greatest problems facing society today.

We celebrate the fact that many of the most pressing questions about the potential and risks of AI have not been settled and that even the experts have different perspectives. Hear from world-renowned thinkers, as we ask: Do great minds think alike?

About the event

Our first seminar will focus on modern slavery – a growing global problem that technology can both exacerbate and alleviate.

The event will explore why the world desperately needs international collaboration across law, AI and ethics to address the problem, focusing specifically on the capacity of current law enforcement systems to track and arrest perpetrators of human trafficking and online exploitation. Experts from the Turing and The Dickson Poon School of Law (King’s College London) will discuss the challenges facing the fields of AI and law in fighting modern slavery, and the exciting potential for multidisciplinary collaboration.

The seminar will be hosted by Anna Loutfi, legal researcher, commentator, and human rights barrister, in conversation with Anjali Mazumder, Theme Lead on AI and Justice & Human Rights at The Alan Turing Institute, and Parosha Chandran, the UK’s leading anti-slavery lawyer and an award-winning human rights barrister.

This conversation is also part of the new season of The Dickson Poon School of Law’s The Verdict podcast, which will be released in Autumn 2021. Keep an eye on @KCL_Law for updates on the new series.
