Over the coming decades, artificial intelligence will profoundly impact the way we live, work, wage war, educate our young, and care for our elderly. It is likely to greatly increase our aggregate wealth, but it will also upend our labor markets, reshuffle our social order, and strain our private and public institutions.
Can a machine be held accountable for its actions? Should intelligent systems enjoy independent rights and responsibilities, or are they simple property? Who should be held responsible when a self-driving car kills a pedestrian?
Jerry Kaplan is the author of Artificial Intelligence. He is a serial entrepreneur, best-selling author, and futurist. He co-founded four Silicon Valley startups, two of which became publicly traded companies. Kaplan is also a fellow at the Stanford Center for Legal Informatics and teaches about the social and economic impact of artificial intelligence in the Computer Science Department of Stanford University.
