The Legal Status of Artificially Intelligent Robots Special Issue

Editorial Board
Special Issue Editors:
  • Andy Pusca (Danubius University)
Just creating technology that could impact the safety of humans it is not enough to simply presume it works. The social structures are already revolutionized by the introduction of the artificial intelligence in industry and society and the legal frameworks are not yet prepared to absorb the impact. This is why we consider that robots should have a distinctive legal status, separate from their users and owners. The role of this special issue is to define the contents of the status of the artificially intelligent agents (liability, rights, taxation duties and so on) for a minimum certainty not only related to eventual damages, but also to the public safety and data protection.
