The Summer School will provide participants with an advanced understanding of the European framework within which robotic and AI technologies are to be developed, marketed and used.
Such technologies represent a novel kind of applications that has to be fitted ithin a pre-existing framework of legal standards, and socio-ethical beliefs and principles. Robots developed by research laboratories and industries across Europe need to comply with existing regulation, be respectful of – and promote – existing rights as recognized by the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (CFR), abide a responsible research and innovation approach and take into account existing – social – needs and desires.
It is therefore essential, both for engineers designing such applications and for lawyers and social scientists seeking to acquire relevant professional skills to be able to counsel roboticists and robotic enterprises, to acquire an exact understanding of all the different profiles and of interdisciplinary interactions.
The Course will provide students with a solid background and methodological approach to:
enter the market for consultancy services to businesses developing robotic and AI products undergo independent research in law and technology understand the non-technological issues to take into account in robotic products design.
The coordinator of the Summer School is Dr. Bertolini, Assistant Professor of Private Law at SSSA, and one of the leading experts in the regulation of robotics and AI in Europe. Dr. Bertolini advised the European Parliament and Commission as well as the World Economic Forum and the OECD on multiple occasions, in particular on issues regarding the regulation of robotics, liability and risk management and product standardization. His research is widely covered by national and international press, including The Economist, The Times, The Guardian, BBC Radio, Wired, Motherboard, Robotic Business Review, Corriere della Sera, Sole 24 Ore, La Stampa, Quotidiano Nazionale, Quattroruote
