I am a law student and in couple of months I will start to write my optional mid-studies thesis. I would like to tackle problems in the field of AI from legal point of view, however I am suffering from general lack of thesis.
I am mostly looking for problems related to intellectual property, if not then secondly related to legal responsibility of AI (but no self-driving cars, it has been beaten to death already) and lastly about application of AI in judicial proceedings.
However I am opened to any suggestions you might have (facial recognition, ethical problems…). Anything that you feel that this field faces or might face in near future from legal point of view. Did you already ran into some related problems?
Feel free to make it as technical as possible, for what it’s worth (honestly not much) since I am interested in this “intersection” I am familiar with some of the underlying concepts, can code in python and took several AP courses in maths and stats, so bring it on bois.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions or tips you might have for me, it would really help my studies.
Edit: I don’t want to end up on /r/choosingbeggars but preferably it should be something “new” (hence the slefdriving cars) and preferably some really specific problems that I could form my thesis around. But of course any insight will be appreciated. And yes, you will get credit in the thesis.
