The Relational Robot: A Normative Lens for AI Legal Neutrality — Commentary on Ryan Abbott, The Reasonable Robot
Jerusalem Review of Legal Studies, Volume 25, Issue 1, June 2022, Pages 24–39
Artificial Intelligence (AI), we are told, is poised to disrupt almost every facet of our lives and society. From industrial labor markets to daily commutes, and from policing tactics to personal assistants, AI brings with it the usual promise and perils of change. How that change will unfold, however, and whether it will ultimately bestow upon us more benefits than harms, remains to be determined. A significant factor in setting the course for AI’s inevitable integration into society will be the legal framework within which it is developed and operationalized. Who will AI displace? What will it replace? What improvements will it bring? What damage will it do? The law has the power to shape the answers, but is it up to the task?
