Tuesday, 25 February 2020 - 1.00pm
Location: 
Faculty of Law, B16

Speaker: Ryan Abbott (University of Surrey)

Abstract

AI and people do not compete on a level-playing field. From a safety perspective, AI may be the best choice for driving a vehicle, but laws often prohibit driverless vehicles. At the same time, a person may be better at providing customer service, but a business may automate because it saves on taxes. AI may be better at helping companies to innovate, but using AI may keep these companies from obtaining intellectual property rights. In The Reasonable Robot, Ryan Abbott argues that the law should not discriminate between people and AI when they are performing the same tasks, a legal standard that will ultimately improve human wellbeing.

3CL runs the 3CL Travers Smith Lunchtime Seminar Series, featuring leading academics from the Faculty, and high-profile practitioners. For more information on past events including recordings, please refer to the Centre activities page.

For all seminars in B16, lunch will be available beforehand in the Basement atrium area. There is no charge for lunch or to attend the seminar.
