On 26-27 March, EWADA researchers attended the Venice Colloquium 2022, co-organised by Sir Nigel Shadbolt, the Royal Society and Goodenough College. The colloqium assembled researchers from Oxford and from Goodenough working in AI, philosophy, legal regulation and public policy to consider how best the development of AI might be framed and regulated across different governments and societies. The Colloquium hopes to sponsor genuine cross-disciplinary exchange between different academic communities.

Oxford researchers contributed a series of talks about AI for children, Privacy and Data Protection in an age of AI, AI regulation for the use of social media, as well as Ethical Data Architectures. A series of essays are expected to be published later this year, reporting all detailed discussions taking place in the Colloquium. We very much look forward to a productive collaboration ahead!
