On the 21st of August 2018 the ANU College of Law will host a public seminar on the complex issues surrounding the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) within the public sector. Public health bodies, social security departments and tax agencies have jumped at the opportunity to adopt automated and data-driven systems, but what might be some of the consequences? Key points of discussion will include the issues of privatisation, privacy, accountability and technological capability that are overlooked or concealed in the push to automate government.

The seminar will be led by Dr Julia Powles (research fellow in technology law and policy at New York University School of Law) and Will Bateman (senior lecturer at the ANU College of Law).
