The responsible machine problem

The legal system faces challenges in extending its principles to machines. Liability, accountability and agency are complex issues attributing to entities without consciousness or intent. As technology advances, the legal system must evolve to address the unique challenges posed by integrating machines into societal roles traditionally held by humans. AI systems are becoming increasingly capable and will serve as tools, builders, collaborators, and decision-makers in the workplace and homes.

The Responsible Machine Problem arises from existing legislation that assumes rights, responsibilities, and penalties for non-compliance with the law to be attributed to a person, not a machine or algorithm. There is a need to legally categorise independent AI, such as whether it is property, a sentient being akin to a legal person, a corporate structure, an animal, or an entirely new classification. AI will continue to raise complex legal questions that must be addressed as it becomes more integrated into our daily lives.
