This online seminar will discuss liability for products and artificial intelligence (AI) in the light of the forthcoming AI Act, the proposed AI Liability Directive (AILD) and the revision of the Product Liability Directive (PLD).

These highly controversial proposals, which aim to adapt liability rules to the digital age, have far reaching implications for the product liability regime at both national and European levels.

This seminar will bring together experts from the European and national legislators, stakeholders and academics to discuss the impact and the best way forward regarding these closely related proposals.

  • Liability for AI: disclosure of evidence and causality
  • Product liability: economic operators, disclosure of evidence, burden of proof and presumption of defectiveness
  • Interplay of the AI Act, the AI Liability Directive and the Product Liability Directive
  • Online platforms and global value chains
  • Liability for fundamental rights and discrimination
