Critical Acclaim
‘A fantastic legal and practical guide – the lawyer and layperson will find this a great insight into this important topic.’
– Susan Draper, Global Growth Capital

‘Charles Kerrigan’s book is an extremely interesting and accessible guide on a subject growing in importance every day. This book demonstrates clearly how AI is a subject matter where law and regulation is as important as the tech itself, and gives some examples of the role that law can – and will need to – play in this space. Charles goes into some of the most relevant ethical debates in this subject. He has got together a team of experts representing a very wide cross-section of law and industry and gives an impressively wide range of thoughts and viewpoints.’
– Erica Stanford, Author of Crypto Wars: Faked Deaths, Missing Billions and Industry Disruption
