Event description
The Reasonable Robot: Artificial Intelligence and the Law

About this event

RLUK's Digital Shift Forum

AI and people do not compete on a level-playing field. Self-driving vehicles may be safer than human drivers, but laws often penalize such technology. People may provide superior customer service, but businesses are automating to reduce their taxes. AI may innovate more effectively, but an antiquated legal framework constrains inventive AI. In The Reasonable Robot, Ryan  argues that the law should not discriminate between AI and human behavior and proposes a new legal principle that will ultimately improve human well-being.
