The LEGAL 2024 WorkshopLegal and Ethical Issues in Human Language Technologies will take place in Turin, Italy on the 25th of May 2024 during the LREC-Coling 2024 Conference.

2023 is likely to be remembered as a year dominated by discussions about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Large Language Models (LLM). These technologies require data to be collected and utilized in unprecedented amounts. Large sets of Language data are owned by stakeholders that are not necessarily involved in the development of such technologies. Language data, despite their intangible nature, are often subject to legal constraints which need to be addressed in order to guarantee lawful access to and re-use of these data. In recent years, considerable efforts have been made to adapt legal frameworks to the advancements in technology while taking into account the interests of various stakeholders.

The purpose of this full-day workshop is to build bridges between technology and legal framework, and discuss current legal and ethical issues in the human language technology sector.

Paper submission deadline: 4 March 2024
