    October 24, 2018  10:30 am - 12:00 pm

    Campus Belval, Esch-sur-Alzette, Maison du Savoir, Room MSA 3200.

    We do rely on email for crucial in-time business decisions, commercial arrangements, operational alignments as well as strategic and long term management directions, changing the courses of industries as a whole. How can we use NLP to process texts written in an email that may include several topics? How can we transform those texts in orders to be redirected to ERP/CRM software? Human operators may generate and realize actions in databases. How will then the machine learn?

  • Legal Design for Human-centered Legal Innovation
    December 5, 2018  12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

    4 Rue Alphonse Weicker, L-2721 Luxembourg - Room B001

    Legal Design is an innovative, interdisciplinary approach that applies human-centered design to prevent or solve legal problems. This means focusing on the ‘users’ of the law (not only lawyers and judges, but also citizens, consumers, businesses) to understand where and how the current legal system can be better designed to serve them. Legal information, documents, services and policies can be more straightforward, more engaging, and more user-friendly.
    This presentation will provide an overview of the theoretical foundations of Legal Design and of some of its concrete applications, with an emphasis on the benefits for the practice of law, for legal innovation and for academic research. The second part of the presentation will then focus on the design of information and interactions in the domain of data protection, with an emphasis on the translation of the GDPR’s requirements about information transparency into viable and easy-to-implement solutions.
