Ethical and Legal implications of Artificial Intelligence
Monday 16 July 2018

How will artificial intelligence influence the legal landscape?

Artificial Intelligence has the potential to transform the world we live in, within a decade. Every career and every industry will soon be influenced by AI. Machines equipped with artificial intelligence are becoming steadily more capable of complex tasks, and displaying higher levels of perception, intuition, and intelligence.

This raises questions of philosophical and ethical import. How will artificial intelligence influence the legal and judicial landscape, in an era where machines can analyse forensic evidence, comprehend legal documents, and even generate verdicts? What questions of ethics are raised when autonomous machines can give diagnoses, conduct medical tests, and perform surgeries? How much autonomy do we give intelligent machines, and who do we blame when they make mistakes?

As a specific example, we will see how AI and technology, in general, shape the legal industry and what opportunities arise for legal corporations and professionals interested in the legal industry.
