I'm very pleased to share that the new American Bar Association committee I'm chairing has just been selected to host a teleconference for the Science & Technology Section on May 13th.  The full title of the event is "Danger, Will Robinson! Issues for Emerging Clients in Bots, Robots, and other Artificial Intelligence Enterprises."  We'll hear from Edwin Olson, MIT team lead for the DARPA Challenge -- building and deploying an unmanned vehiclde in an urban environment -- about the legal issues he considered in the course of this work.  Then, we'll talk about the state of the law today for liability, ownership, agency, and other issues relating to human emulating technologies.  And, we'll talk about changes in the law that might be appropriate and how to begin the process of driving those changes.  Please contact the American Bar Association or me to find out more.
