What is AI?
There is no universally accepted definition of AI, but a reasonable summary is that it covers the automation of tasks that are generally considered to require intelligence. Much of AI's recent breakthroughs are in "machine learning", where a computer system follows procedures to learn from data or an environment. The dramatic advances are typically accompanied by significant limitations, such as a lack of transparency as to how the AI works, risks of unpredictable failure and potential bias.
AI's technical powers and limitations, combined with ethical concerns around the influence of AI systems, raise new legal issues in areas such as product liability, negligence, intellectual property and competition law. With intense scrutiny from regulators and legislatures worldwide, AI is one of the most complex and fast moving areas of the law.
