ECIAIR Keynote Speaker and Panel Outlines

The following are outlines for the Keynote Speeches which will take place at ECIAIR 2021.

Justice, Fairness and AI

Jean-Gabriel Ganascia

The concept of fairness has a prominent status in John Rawls Theory of Justice as the grounding of Justice, while many other classical philosophers among who one can cite Aristotle or more recently Vladimir Jankélévitch, distinguishes it from the strict application of rules, showing there how laws distinguishes from ethics. After a general introduction of the concepts of justice and fairness, and then a conceptual clarification of the notions of equality, equity, bias, partiality, discrimination and inclusion, we shall show how it is possible to make AI based algorithmic decision making conform to the right and how it is difficult to make them fair. Doing this, the talk will provide rudiments to the AI-based legal and ethical reasoning simulations.
