This group is a meetup for people interested in the intersection among robotics, artificial intelligence, and the law. It focuses on the latest trends in technologies such as autonomous driving, personal assistants such as Siri, personal and service robots, industrial robots, AI megasystems such as IBM's Watson, companies replicating the functionality of the human brain, and control systems for autonomous devices. The group supports the work of the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Committee of the American Bar Association Section of Science & Technology Law and an interest group of the same name in the High Technology Law Section of the Santa Clara County Bar Association.
These two groups comprise a diverse group of lawyers, industry experts, technologists, auditors and other professionals, whose focus includes the examination and analysis of legal, business, and technical aspects of robotics, artificial intelligence, and human collaboration with automated systems. This group is of particular interest to businesses developing, manufacturing, distributing, procuring, operating, and disposing of robots and companies developing and offering AI systems. Topics for discussion include product or service liability, compliance with safety, privacy, and security requirements in laws, response to accidents and data breaches, litigation arising from the foregoing, and managing the risk of these events.
