Here is the brief summary of the lecture kindly provided by Alessandro Puzzanghera:
Currently we are witnessing the development and spread of technology in our lives that is also massively impacting our legal and political orders. More precisely, the artificial intelligence is on the rise producing range of issues for constitutional and administrative law in general and for human rights in particular. We are confronted with challenges to public law stemming from this imposing phenomenon. There are ethical and anthropological questions that represent a real change of paradigm, at the bottom of which there could be a new and redesigned idea of humanity. The lecture proposes a debate on the use of artificial intelligence in the administrative sector (from computer used as an archive to a computer capable of making decisions), with particular attention to what are the concepts, principles and standards of legitimacy and control, also wondering about the additional available applications.
