Product description

Artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to transform the economy, the nature of work, entire fields of human endeavor such as medicine and engineering, and the nature of government and commercial decision-making. Many of these transformations are already underway, with the technology advancing more quickly than we seem equipped to regulate it. Yet although there has been relatively little AI-specific litigation or legislation in Canada—or elsewhere for that matter—the rapid advance of these technologies creates a need to interrogate how our existing legal frameworks can apply or how they may need to adapt to this fundamentally disruptive technology.

This book reflects upon the risks and the potential for AI technologies, providing valuable insight into the state of AI and the law in Canada. It is divided into discrete topics discussing how AI interfaces or impacts traditional subject areas of law such as:

  • Copyright law
  • Patent and trade secrets
  • Contract law
  • Tort law
  • Data protection law
  • Competition law
  • Administrative law
  • Health law
