Panel Description

The question of whether to grant to AI systems legal personality, trisecting thus the century-old legal dichotomy between a natural and a legal person, has recently exited purely academic dialogue, where it has been actively discussed at least for the past decade, and has forcefully entered policy making: In essence, all recent expert reports outlining the policy options at hand when dealing with AI systems have invariably addressed the issue of whether or not to grant AI, new, legal personality. This panel will address relevant questions from a legal, ethics and policy perspective in order to highlight the reasoning behind such options and provide insights for the future. The panel will address, among other topics:

Legal personality to AI

AI liability

Digital personhood
