DAC Beachcroft’s Technology team co-authors book on responsible artificial intelligence

Published 24 May 2019

DAC Beachcroft technology partners Michael Peeters and Rhiannon Webster have contributed to the continued debate about the need for international regulation of the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in a new book, Responsible AI: A Global Policy, published on 23 May.

Michael was the lead author of the chapter covering Privacy and AI Rights, with key contributions made by Rhiannon and the wider Technology team.  Other topics covered in the chapter included Ethical Purpose and Societal Benefit, Accountability, Transparency and Explainability, Fairness and Non-Discrimination, Safety and Reliability, Open Data and Fair Competition, and Intellectual Property, which were written by contributors from major technology law firms from key jurisdictions and a number of specialists from leading universities.  The book was showcased at the World Technology Law Conference held in May 2019 in Boston, which was organised by the book’s publisher, ITechLaw, and attended by Michael Peeters and DAC Beachcroft partner and Head of Technology Tim Ryan.

Michael said, “This book is at the forefront of the AI regulation debate – one which will only become more and more relevant and significant with the exponential introduction of this tech into our daily lives.  AI has enormous potential for positive societal impact but also for unintended and grave consequences, and we hope that this book accelerates the debate around the ethics of its use.”
