WAICOM 2022 : International Workshop on AI compliance mechanism
Call For Papers
International Workshop on AI compliance mechanism (WAICOM 2022)
associated with the 35th International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems (JURIX 2022)
December 14, 2022
Saarland University, Saarbrücken, Germany
Aims and Scope
With the development and spread of AI techniques, ensuring the adherence of AI's behavior to legal and ethical principles has become a major subject. General fear of the unintended effects of AI systems, by its actions and its use of personal data, has led to a strong demand for trustworthy AI. This is a central concern that has become prominent both in public opinion and policy maker's agenda. The EU High-Level Expert Group on AI, convened by the European Commission in 2018, published a report on “Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI” says that AI systems should be:
* lawful, complying with all applicable laws and regulations
* ethical, ensuring adherence to ethical principles and values
The purpose of this workshop is to bring researchers together to present approaches to tackling legal/ethical AI compliance problems including the relationship between compliance and standards, legislation and regulation and to discuss selected challenges arising from AI compliance. We also solicit use cases related with AI compliance problems to create a basis to investigate common problems for future collaboration.
Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Theory of Legal Norm Compliance
• Theory of Ethical Norm Compliance
• Theory of Unified Treatment of Legal/Ethical Norm Compliance
• Ontology to Represent Norms
• Detecting Compliance Violation
• Agent Behaviour Revision upon Compliance Violation
• Knowledge Representation and Reasoning with Multiple Legal and Ethical Norms
• Standards and Tools for Norm Compliance
• Real Applications of Compliance Check
