L8011 The Technology, Business, Law, and Policy of AI
Section 001, January 2019
Section Description Provided by Instructor
Artificial intelligence is transforming the way that companies and organizations engage, routine tasks are carried out, and humans relate to one another. Machine learning, natural language processing, machine vision, and related technologies are augmenting or replacing human intelligence in a number of domains, creating new legal and policy issues, challenges and opportunities.
Students that take this course are expected to gain fluency, working knowledge and the rudimentary skills of analysis that pertain to the technology, business, law and policy issues raised by artificial intelligence, robotics, and related technologies. Through reading assignments, case studies, and research exercises, students will leave the course with the ability to understand the business models and comparative advantages of various artificial intelligence firms and projects, to spot and analyze the issues raised by them, and to problem-solve and understand how to apply existing and emerging frameworks to legal, ethical and policy challenges associated with artificial intelligence.
