LAW 1098: Artificial Intelligence Law
Summer 2023 • Section 21 • CRN 11614

Course Description

Artificial Intelligence attempts to replicate human intelligence so the AI can perform tasks that typically require human intelligence. Based on the capacity to mimic human characteristics, the technology used, the real-world applications, and the theory of the mind, AI is focused into goal-oriented abilities designed to perform specific tasks, or AI abilities that are in parity with human abilities, or AI abilities that are more capable than a human. Lawyers are not only presented with AI issues related to their law practice, legal decision-making, and law firm management, but they are also presented with AI issues related to: medical devices, medical diagnosis, surgery, and medical/health care; autonomous vehicles; cyberprivacy, cybersecurity, and national security concerns; disinformation; bias and its impact(s) on marginalized groups (e.g., employment, setting bail, and criminal justice); intellectual property (e.g., AI as inventor, author, artist, musician, or others, whether an individual or entity); finance; transportation; advertising; and a variety of other fields. The governance of AI is aimed at ensuring AI’s numerous potential benefits while minimizing risks to consumers’ health, safety, security, and privacy is only beginning. Lawyers, policymakers, risk management professionals, legislatures and courts must address AI legal liability and governance issues with respect to development, deployment, and use of AI applications.
