Summary/Abstract

In recent years, technology companies, developers, investors, and others have turned their attention to Artificial Intelligence (“AI”). Although little consensus exists regarding its definition, AI solutions generally leverage powerful computing algorithms to analyze data and produce outputs that mimic human intelligence at greater speed and scale than humanly possible. The speed at which companies have been able to develop and implement AI is due, in part, to a lack of laws and regulations governing its development and use. Yet without much legal guidance, companies are assuming great risk by adopting AI at such a rapid clip.
