Every year, CIAJ includes a free panel specially designed for law students in its flagship Annual Conference. CIAJ’s 2019 Annual Conference on “The Impact of Artificial Intelligence and Social Media on Legal Institutions” is taking a hard, critical look at the challenges that courts and the legal profession must face in order to maintain public confidence in the administration of justice. The event will take place in Quebec City, October 16-18, 2019.

Free Student Panel | October 17, 2019, 3:00 – 4:30 pm
Vulnerability and Control: Deepfakes, Image-Based Abuse and Online Harm

What kinds of harms arise in the age of the internet, social media and artificial intelligence? Is online harm a new kind of violence, or a symptom of existing social problems affecting vulnerable people? This panel will consider the legal gaps that permit online harm to occur and the extra-legal solutions people take to redress them. Is law an effective tool to solve the societal, ethical and legal problems presented by “deepfakes,” “revenge porn,” “disinformation” and “spyware?” How can we balance the freedom of expression with the protection of the public?
