The new book "XXVI lezioni di Diritto dell'Intelligenza Artificiale", edited by Prof. Ruffolo and published by Giappichelli, is now available. The work collects forty essays written on the basis of the experience of the cycle of seminars on "Artificial Intelligence and Law", held in October-December 2020 at the University of Bologna, promoted by Prof. Luca Mezzetti and coordinated by Prof. Ugo Ruffolo and Avv. Andrea Amidei.
The volume does not represent a mere publication of the proceedings of the seminar, but a subsequent collection of writings, arranged both in chapters (almost "textbook-like") and in twenty-six ideal lectures. These lectures explore and deepen the juridical problems and the ethical profiles connected to the Law of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.), which is about to become an autonomous discipline with an high interdisciplinary vocation.
The volume intends to contribute to the complex dialogue on the topics concerning A.I. between different world: the authors of the work are, in fact, both academics (twenty-four full professors of many disciplines in nine different universities), chiefs of emblematic companies (IMA) or enterprises of the field (Vetrya), and lawyers or top managers of representative realities (Google, Sace, Unipol).
The book deals with a wide range of topics: from "what is" A.I. to ethical and constitutional profiles; from "electronic personality" and personal rights to human enhancement and privacy; from contractual relationships and "algorithmic" liability (with the case study of the autonomous vehicle) to the (not only) criminal "offense" of the machine; and then algorithmic creations; credit scoring and insurance profiling; predictive justice and robotic sentences and measures; algorithmic corporate governance; fiscal policy; data and competition; enterprise 4.0 and consequences on the labour market.
