Who’s to blame when machines behave badly?
Our current legal systems were built to regulate human behavior, not the actions of unsupervised machines. As businesses rush to build and implement A.I. products and processes, they must plan ahead for emerging risks. For example, what happens if machine learning makes a company vulnerable to attackers injecting fake training data into a system? What if a healthcare company’s A.I. misinterprets data and neglects to identify cancer among certain patients?
These are the kinds of problems that could open a company up to lawsuits. LaPlaya Insurance and Allianz are now studying new liability insurance models that may help to address these issues.
