Virtual Cyber Policy Talk: Privatizing Federalism in Health Data Regulation

  • 12:00PM to 1:00PM
  • Zoom

In the last decade, since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, debates regarding access to health care and relatedly, of federalism, have focused on who sets the rules for healthcare payment.

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

  • 12:00PM to 1:00PM
  • Zoom

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.

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.
