Book talk: ‘The Reasonable Robot: AI and the Law’ with Ryan Abbott

The Centre for Data Innovation is hosting a conversation with Ryan Abbott on his new book The Reasonable Robot: Artificial Intelligence and the Law.

The book argues that, as a general principle, the law should not discriminate between AI and human behavior, and discusses how this principle should shape tax, tort, intellectual property, and criminal law.

The speakers are:

  • Ryan Abbott, professor of Law and Health Sciences, University of Surrey School of Law
  • Daniel Castro, director, Centre for Data Innovation (moderator)
