As such, ethics have surfaced widely in discussions on how to mitigate negative effects regarding AI. Critical interventions have however shown that there is a risk that ethics is used as a concept to merely wash off more fundamental questions regarding distributive justice. These critical interventions can however easily turn into a one-sided form of ethics bashing, which risks diminish the potential of reconsidering the role that AI may play in creating a more just society. For this reason it will be suggested that a more nuanced idea of both ethics and law can be explored via posthumanist critical theory.<span> </span></span></p> <p><span lang="EN-US"><strong>Jannice Käll </strong>is L.LD. in Legal Theory and Senior Lecturer in Sociology of Law at Lund University.

This is especially so when it comes to the use of AI in public decision-making, such as when AI is used to determine whether someone should get a loan at the bank, or whether they should get social security benefits at the social services. One of the main ideas expressed in the debate about AI in public decision-making is that these processes need to be open somehow to be legitimate, and that the opaqueness of AI systems (as opposed to human ones) poses specific challenges in this regard. In this talk, de Fine Licht will discuss how we can (and cannot) use transparency to increase legitimacy when using AI in public decision-making.</span></p> <p><span lang="EN-US"> </span></p> <p><span lang="EN-US"></span></p> <p><span lang="EN-US"><strong>Karl de Fine Licht</strong> has a PhD in Practical Philosophy and is Senior Lecturer in Ethics and Technology at Chalmers University of Technology.
