What is it?
Do we need robot law? A free event, taking place on Tuesday 31st January as part of the British Academy’s season on Robotics, AI and Society, will be discussing this very topic.
Advances in AI raise questions about autonomy and accountability. What happens if a faithful servant disobeys an action, and who is to blame if things go wrong? Can our current governance mechanisms lessen these risks and empower us to adopt new technologies? Or do we need new laws and guidelines?
There will be four speakers taking part in the event, including Professor Susanne Beck, Professor for Criminal Law and Law Philosophy at University Hannover, and Professor Noel Sharkey, Emeritus Professor of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at the University of Sheffield.
