Artificial Intelligence as a legal subject

Friday, February 24, 2006

An inevitable consequences of MNT is the arrival of Artificial Intellegence. Is it possible that the Law recognises AI? What are the consequences?
An excerpt from my article:
"The categorization of legal subject might changed as -- by taking a historical approach towards the invocation of child fetus and Company as a legal subject-- it is possible to construct a developmental model in order to accept near-Artificial Intelligence (AI) supercomputer as the tomorrow’s “legal person”.
Take a look at the hypothetical case of BINA 48 (a supercomputer) vs Exabit Corp (an incorporated company). Check out the defendant's brief here.
A good compendium of online resources on AI Law can be found here.
