Transatlantic Dialogue on Humanity and AI Regulation Event

May 12-13, 2022
HEC Paris, France

Free; Registration Required


The collaboration between faculty from the US and EU is intended to better identify, define and understand the challenges, opportunities, and regulatory approaches to artificial intelligence in a global society.

The goals of the Transatlantic Dialogue are to:

  • Engage in transatlantic and cross disciplinary discussions about potential regulation of AI and machine learning
  • Foster a transatlantic community of researchers to compare approaches,
  • Inform policy, and create networks to address the challenges and questions surrounding AI regulation for a human centered future.

The dialogue is organized by four thematic panels

  • Humanity and Risk Management
  • Regulation and Ethics
  • Standard Setting and Values
  • AI and Human Decision Loops

The schedule has been designed to accommodate the time difference between the U.S. and Europe as some scholars will connect from the U.S.
