Project background and aims

The project aims to explore liability issues involving algorithms and artificial intelligence looking at a number of areas where such issues might arise, how existing laws may be applied in common law countries including Australia and where such developments may take us in the future.

Methodology

The analysis will be traditional legal doctrinal with an underpinning of philosophical analysis, particularly in the more speculative final section.
