Eckert Seamans launches Artificial Intelligence Law Blog
December 13, 2018
Eckert Seamans announces the launch of its Artificial Intelligence Law Blog (artificialintelligencelawblog.com), edited and written by lawyers in the firm’s AI, Robotics, and Autonomous Transportation Systems Practice Group. The purpose of this blog is to present legal developments in the fields of artificial intelligence, robotics and autonomous transportation systems, legal issues on subjects that relate to these fields, and commentary about how the law might impact each of those cutting-edge areas of technology.
The co-editors of this blog are Mark C. Levy, Jodi Dyan Oley, and Francis G.X. Pileggi, all of whom are members (partners) at Eckert Seamans. The editors and other contributors will focus on addressing the legal needs of innovative companies developing AI technology, manufacturers employing this technology in the transportation industry, and companies utilizing AI/robotic tech in the medical device, pharmaceutical, biologic, food product, health care, consumer product, and industrial products industries, among others. The blog will also address the impact of AI on corporate governance and related legal topics.
