Plans have been made to perform research on the interactions of technology and law. Based on a press release, the activities of the Center today include research about regulating and deploying AI, and data protection’s analysis and privacy issues from computer science and law perspectives.
It also wants to provide legal and non-legal scholars forum who are interested in different technology law aspects.
Technology and Law Effect
Senior Minister of State, Mr Tong said: “The increasingly rapid pace of technological developments in fields like artificial intelligence, predictive analytics Internet of Things and autonomous vehicles means the law has to respond even more quickly.”
Professor Daniel Seng, who will be TRAIL’s next director added: “TRAIL seeks to contribute towards the conversation on how we harness and integrate technology, in a useful and equitable way, into our society and our practice of law.”
“In addition, TRAIL intends to harness technologies such as data analytics and natural language processing to help us understand legal issues better and improve our laws and social policies. Ultimately, we aim to establish a more responsive legal system for the new age of technology and law.”
TRAIL will also have a collaboration with research centres outside the country and has gained agreements with the Centre for Media and Communications Law and Intellectual Property Research Institute of Australia at the Melbourne Law School, and the Law and Technology Center at the University of Hong Kong.
