Summary of Robots Are People Too
How Siri, Google Car, and Artificial Intelligence Will Force Us to Change Our Laws
Can you sue a robot? What happens if a Google Car runs over your dog? What are the legal and cultural ramifications of artificial intelligence?
Attorney John Frank Weaver, an expert on artificial intelligence and the law, addresses the emerging legal positives, negatives and complications related to robots and artificial intelligence (AI), both weak and strong. He goes over several distinct arenas of human interaction, one at a time, in a way that allows him to build a cumulative argument. Weaver discusses technological developments in both historical and legal contexts as he analyzes how AI will affect your work and your life. Tech geeks who revel in the potential future of this technology will welcome his humorous riffs on great robots and droids from popular culture. getAbstract recommends Weaver’s informed and sobering consideration of AI to anyone who follows technological trends, economics and future visions of society. It will also intrigue entrepreneurs, investors, and those working in defense and automotive fields, manufacturing, shipping, medicine or home care.
