Robotics, AI and the Future of Law

In November the new book „Robotics, AI and the Future of Law“ edited by Marcelo Corrales, Mark Fenwick and Nikolaus Forgó was published as part of the book series: Perspectives in Law, Business and Innovation. The book includes contributions on current trends in the field of technology from the perspective of various traditional sub-disciplines of legal studies.

Two of the book chapters have been provided by IRI staff members.  Ioannis Revolidis joined by Alan Dahi wrote a chapter on the extra-contractual liability of robots with the title “The Peculiar Case of the Mushroom Picking Robot: Extra-contractual Liability in Robotics”. Stefanie Hänold provided a chapter on profiling and automated decision-making focusing on the impact of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) with the title “Profiling and Automated Decision-Making: Legal Implications and Shortcomings”.

The book is available at Springer Link.
