The course, at its second edition, aims at providing its students with a broad understanding of all implications of robotics that are going to be increasingly relevant in the legal, political and social debate over the coming years.

According to a study carried out by McKinsey, robotics and artificial intelligence (R&AI) may have an impact on the market greater than 4.5 trillion per year by 2025. Developing a leading industry in this field, therefore, is strategic: all the world’s largest economies are heavily investing in its research.

At the same time new technologies as biorobotics (bionic limbs, exoskeletons, brain machine interfaces) are going to deeply challenge our understanding of human life and human limits; others, as expert systems and AI, promise to reshape the labor market. Every aspect of our societies is going to be involved and changed: mere technological research is not sufficient to drive new technologies toward a human oriented progress.

Social scientists – lawyers, political scientists, economists – as well as engineers researching these technologies need to get together, addressing the relevant issues raised by new technologies. In order to do so, they need to acquire a new and open interdisciplinary approach involving law, economics, engineering and ethics together.

Teaching essential AI and Robotics Regulation to help you bring innovations and products to the market

Help you identify what to watch out for when designing and adopting new technologies in production processes.

NO previous legal knowledge required.

The Course is structured into lectures and case-studies; the interdisciplinary approach is one of the main features of the course.

The classes will address the following topics:

-          Current Issues on EU law on R&AI

-          Current trends in AI and robotics

-          IP law

-          Technology Trends

-          Technology assessment

-          Data protection

-          Standards and product safety     

-          Product liability (civil and criminal)
