Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Law


AI and Consumer Protection Laws

The use of AI in the consumer market has increased manifolds. Now personalization is not just limited to advertisements but has extended to the product, prices and contract terms also. This automation has created new degrees of opportunities, risks and liabilities for the consumers. Numerous legal firms are also employing AI for automated compliance monitoring and enforcement of consumer laws. This makes it imperative to examine the impact, positive or negative, of Artificial Intelligence on consumer protection and solve the tussle between AI and Consumer Protection Act and Motor Vehicle Act.

AI and Forensics

Forensics as a subject is a complex intersection of science and law. AI has entered multiple arenas of forensics like digital forensics, multimedia forensics, speaker identification, image processing etc. It plays a crucial role in deciding cases. It can enhance the likelihood of detecting fraud, cybercrime, and other illegal activities. However, there is no proper guideline or statute adhering to international standards regulating investigators and experts. Another major legal concern is its admissibility in the court. Therefore, we need to deliberate on the issues and challenges faced to chart a way.

AI and Intellectual Property Laws

AI in near future can disrupt the field of intellectual Property. It is at a complex juncture with copyright, patent and trademark. AI-enabled systems can create breakthrough inventions without any human intervention. Indian IPR laws are outdated and so it becomes crucial to ruminate on how to amend them on lines of changing technology, keeping in mind the international legal framework.

AI and Human Rights

 Artificial Intelligence systems can prove to be vital in upholding human rights. It can detect potential violations of human rights. However, there are chances that the real-life impact of AI can severely harm human interest if left unchecked. A plethora of issues like the use of deepfakes, job replacement, suppression of freedom of speech on social media, infringement of privacy, furthering gender and race bias over the internet etc have cropped up in the past few years. Hence, there is a need to decide on how to re-design our laws and regulatory framework to deal with these problems in an efficient manner.

Health Care Laws and AI

The past decade has seen many advances in the field of health care due to the use of AI. It has increased the efficiency of surgeons with the use of robots, reduced the cost, and provides better treatment and aftercare. But there are potential legal and policy issues like lack of transparency, unauthorized use of data, bias, medical malpractice, errors in diagnosis etc. which requires evaluation by lawmakers and scholars.

 Artificial Intelligence and International Law

AI tools are being extensively used by states in governance and enforcement of International Law. There is immense potential for AI to be used in the automation of legal services, legal personality, military and weapon systems, cyber defense, treaties, delegation, asylum etc. Therefore, the is an urgent need to explore the substantive areas of International law that will intersect with machine learning.

AI and Criminal Justice System

 AI has started metamorphosing the criminal justice system by reducing pendency in courts, increasing accessibility of justice, preventing crime, and modernizing the policing ecosystem. Nonetheless, there is a need to address specific points like the criminal liability of AI, predictive justice, unauthorized surveillance, bias and discrimination.

Cyber security laws and AI

The cyber security industry is progressing to keep up with the frequent and sophisticated threats from hackers and AI has an important role in maintaining its agility. Security professionals can now detect vulnerabilities, predict threats, and recognize the origin of the attack and malicious patterns in network traffic. However, the same AI has been used by hackers to steal proprietary data, and launch attacks. Hence, there is a need to analyze and evaluate the contemporary legal system and recommend measures for improvement.
