The rise of artificial intelligence and robotics across a wide variety of industries and sectors is posing significant legal challenges for both companies and the agencies that regulate them. Product developers, companies, lawyers and regulators are struggling with the swift pace of change and determining the most effective way to regulate and govern robots and AI systems. Specific issues include: protecting the public from the premature deployment and marking of immature technologies, the scope of human responsibility for AI behavior, how to make AI accountable for its own actions, and how to regulate non-human behavior.
AI and robotics are raising all sorts of legal and regulatory issues of compliance, transactions, liability, investigations, and governance. This inaugural national institute is the place to be to learn practical legal strategies for dealing with these transformative technologies.
Speakers bringing their industry-leading expertise to bear include lawyers, technology leaders, ethicists, engineers and regulators who are on the front lines of AI and robotics and the legal conundrums these are creating. Sessions provide the scene for them to share their wide-ranging knowledge and experience on how to move the legal questions out of the classroom and into the real world.
