About AI on Trial

AI on Trial addresses the current state of artificial intelligence and the law, identifies why the technology should be 'placed on trial' and presents relevant evidence, before passing 'judgment' on the legal, ethical and regulatory framework.

Following the same process as a High Court trial, the book takes an innovative approach to the most innovative of technological areas. The 'trial' examines such questions as:

Who owns AI?
Is AI a product in its own right?
Should AI have rights and responsibilities?
Is AI racist?
What are the legal and ethical issues created by implicit bias of coders and data sets?
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 harnessing growth and technological advancement.

Written from a practitioner, academic and journalistic viewpoint, this is an essential title for all information technology law practitioners, in-house counsel, data protection officers, company directors, finance directors, academics and students. Technologists, regulators, legislators and journalists will also benefit.
