There was some discussion of legal informatics issues at the panel entitled Intelligent Systems and Robotics: How Will These Technologies Interact with Policy? held 16 May 2014 at Microsoft Innovation and Policy Center, Washington, DC, USA.
I think the panel was followed by presentations by students in the panelists’ courses on robot law.
One Twitter hashtag for the event was: #intelligentapps
The legal informatics topics discussed at the event included the following:
- Ryan Calo discussed law firms’ “delving into #robotics, drones, #intelligentapps”
- Meg Leta Ambrose discussed “her research on how parole boards use algorithms & #IntelligentSystems to evaluate prisoners”
- Ryan Calo said: “One of the students wrote her dissertation on privacy by design for drones.”
