Legal frontiers: AI to ethics
This article is sponsored by LexisNexis
AI has already begun to revolutionise the way we live our lives and the way we work — and as this technology becomes more integrated with our everyday activities, we need to cast our eyes to the future to ensure this ongoing development maintains ethical standards and provides benefit for all.
The Report looks broadly at some of the issues of tech and the law, from its impacts on graduate roles and career paths, to the professional responsibilities of lawyers in understanding complex technologies, to the human rights concerns that arise when looking at the application of AI in our justice system.
We are at the beginning of a disruptive period of technological development comparable to an industrial revolution.
In this foundational period, AI presents ethical challenges that must be worked through, but once these ethical issues are resolved and a safe environment for development has been created, AI will have the potential to deliver exceptional efficiencies and cost savings, improve human rights and development, and provide improved access to justice for the majority of society.
