AI on Trial follows the same process as a High Court trial, and in so doing it takes an innovative approach to the most innovative of technological areas.
Addressing the current state of artificial intelligence and the law, the book identifies why the technology should be 'placed on trial' and presents relevant evidence, before passing 'judgment' and proposing a Manifesto for Responsible AI and a blueprint for an ethical, legal and regulatory framework.
The 'trial' examines such questions as:
-Should AI, a computer technology, have rights and responsibilities?
-What are the legal and ethical issues created by the implicit bias of coders and data sets?
-Is AI racist?
-Do we need a Hippocratic Oath in AI?
-Could AI lead to a data war to end all wars?
-Can we trust AI?
Readers will benefit from understanding the necessary considerations in formulating any legal framework and will come to recognise the role of any such framework, not only in preventing harm, but in supporting growth and technological advancement.
Written from the viewpoint of practitioners, academics and journalists, this is an essential title for all information and technology law practitioners, in-house counsel, data protection officers, company directors, finance directors, academics and students. Technologists, regulators, legislators and journalists interested in getting to grips with the issues presented by AI will also benefit.
