Virtual Cyber Policy Talk:The Reasonable Robot: Artificial Intelligence and the Law

12:00PM to 1:00PM


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 Abbott 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.

Virtual Cyber Policy Talk: Digital Age Samaritans

12:00PM to 1:00PM


Modern technology enables crimes to be documented and viewed contemporaneously or soon after. This technology creates jurisdictional and authenticity challenges but also opportunities for individuals who are not even physically present to become aware of emergencies and to provide assistance. This presentation—and its related forthcoming article—will explore some of these situations and consider what, if any, affirmative duties third parties should shoulder in those contexts.
