Chair objectives

The Law, Accountability and Social Trust in AI Chair brings together an interdisciplinary team of researchers in law, computer science and mathematics. It also includes professionals working in critical AI application sectors, in particular in the health and public safety sectors. The Chair favors a pragmatic approach through industrial and institutional partnerships, such as Toulouse Metropole, Occitanie Data, the Oncopole, and the National Police Force.                    

À la croisée du droit et de la technique, l’objectif principal est d’étudier les risques sociaux susceptibles d’être générés par l’IA. Il s’agit d’envisager les réponses apportées par le droit pour atténuer les risques et réparer les dommages qui pourraient survenir. Pour ce faire, la chaire analyse et anticipe les effets des règles de droit en intégrant les caractéristiques techniques de l’IA, ce qui est rendu possible par la coopération des chercheurs de ces trois domaines de recherche. La collaboration entre droit et sciences permet non seulement de dépasser les principes éthiques de l’IA afin de proposer des exigences concrètes de réglementation, mais aussi de concevoir des outils permettant de contrôler la conformité aux exigences juridiques existantes et à venir.

The more specific objectives of the Chair are to: conduct studies on the framework of AI technologies, based on current and future regulatory projects, in France and the European Union, but also in Canada and the United States; accompany AI researchers on the respect and discussion of these requirements; feed the reflection on the insufficiency of standards being developed to feed future standards in a concern to bring about a responsible and socially just AI. The work of the Chair aims to inform and sensitize public and private designers and users of AI as well as to enlighten legislators and public policy makers. Finally, the Chair is characterized by a strong leadership to supervise the new generation of researchers (M1 & M2 students, PhD students, post-doctoral fellows) in order to train them to a transdisciplinary approach of law and technology.
