The Reasonable Robot: Artificial Intelligence and the Law
Foyalty 69

The Reasonable Robot: Artificial Intelligence and the Law (Paperback)

£22.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Today, 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 packing boxes at a warehouse, but a business may automate because AI receives preferential tax treatment. Or, AI may be better at helping businesses to innovate, but these same businesses may not want to use AI if doing so restricts future 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 help to eliminate market distortions and to ensure that decisions are made on the basis of efficiency. This work should be read by anyone interested in the rapidly evolving relationship between AI and the law.

Ryan Abbott is Professor of Law and Health Sciences at the School of Law, University of Surrey. A physician and patent attorney, Abbott has published widely on issues associated with law and technology, health law, and intellectual property in leading medical, legal, and scientific journals. He has served as an expert for the World Health Organization, World Intellectual Property Organization, and the European Commission. Along with teaching both law and medicine, Abbot also spearheaded the first patent application disclosing an invention made autonomously by a machine.
