Buyers beware – AI and the law

Overview

At present, there is no specific body of law devoted to the range of new technologies that fall under the AI heading. Instead, the consequences of AI going wrong or making mistakes fall under existing common law and legislation governing contract, employment, health and safety at work, the environment, and so on. In English law, negligence is established where there is a breach of a duty of care, determined by the issues of remoteness, causation and foreseeability, which either results in, or might lead to loss, damage or injury. Those found to be at fault are either individuals, companies, or both.
