Oliver Groth, a 2nd year PhD student at ORI, was invited to give a talk in Berlin at @KIT19, an annual German conference about legal aspects of IT development. This year’s issue was hosted by Google and focused on the ramifications of self-learning and autonomous systems once they are released into the public space.

Oliver presented an overview of state-of-the-art applications of deep learning like real-time object detectors, chatbots or GANs to raise awareness about the capabilities and weaknesses of current deep learning technology and allude to related societal and legal issues like dataset bias, bot accountability and authenticity of digital content.
