This raises a host of challenges to current legal doctrine, including whether AI/algorithms should count as ‘speech’, whether AI should be regulated under antitrust and criminal law statutes, and whether AI should be considered as an agent under agency law or be held responsible for injuries under tort law. This book contains chapters from US and international law scholars on the role of law in an age of increasingly smart AI, addressing these and other issues that are critical to the evolution of the field. 2018 736 pp Hardback 978 1 78643 904 8 £247.00 / $361.00 Oct 2022 Paperback 978 1 0353 0854 5 £45.00 / $70.00 eBook • Elgaronline LAW TITLES PUBLISHED OCT - DEC 2022
