Speaking at Artificial Intelligence and Robotics National Institute

I am excited to share that I have been selected as a panelist at the American Bar Association’s upcoming Artificial Intelligence and Robotics National Institute event in October.

I will serve on a panel for the “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Sophia? The Future of Legal Personhood for Artificial Generally Intelligent or Superintelligent AI Systems” session, which will be held on October 28, 2020.

As part of the discussion, the panel will cover the debate over legal personhood for AI systems, covering both contemporary examples of personhood and the roadmap to future personhood.
