Lecture: EU Digital Law and Synthetic Data.
About: The goal of this lecture is threefold:
1) to give a short introduction to EU digital law,
2) to explain how synthetic data (that is, fake data generated by machine learning methods that mimic the statistical properties of an original/real dataset) hold the promise to circumvent data protection and copyright limitations, and
(3) to show how thinking about these uses of synthetic data can illustrate certain tensions within the EU Digital Strategy.
The lecture partially builds on:
Katja de Vries (2022) ‘A Researcher’s Guide for Using Personal Data and Non-Personal Data Surrogates: Synthetic Data and Data of Deceased People’ in: ‘Law, AI and Digitalisation’ (Eds. Katja De Vries, Mattias Dahlberg), Iustus, Uppsala.
In this chapter Katja de Vries examines synthetic data as a ‘possible surrogate for personal data, which allow researchers to escape from the scope of the GDPR.’

In this lecture, we will discuss the role that companies are expected to play in the governance of Artificial Intelligence under the proposed EU AI Regulation. This Regulation, if passed, will be the first significant binding legal instrument regulating the development and use of artificial intelligence in the world, and will shape the development of the governance of AI not only in the European Union but across the globe.

The proposed Regulation will impose a wide range of obligations on providers of AI systems to ensure that the systems they place on the market are safe and respect the fundamental rights of persons. These providers will mostly be business companies, in both Europe and elsewhere. This lecture will explain the proposed Regulation and examine in particular the obligations, which the Regulation would impose on such companies engaged in the development and deployment of AI.

Speaker: Hiroko Ito (Academic Research Fellow, Graduate School of Law, Nagoya University, Japan)
