AALS Call for Papers: Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things, and Social Values

American Association of Law Schools

The AALS Section on Internet and Computer Law invites papers on Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things, and Social Values. Papers will be shared at the Section‘s meeting January 5, 2017, 1:30-3:15 p.m.

The Internet of Things will create a vast surge in the amount of data that we – and our devices – generate. To make sense of this trove of information will require the use of algorithms and artificial intelligence by researchers, firms, and government. Digital sifting creates both promise and peril, and is certain to clash with important social norms. For example, it may force us to revisit norms around privacy, ownership, prediction, and the public-private boundary. The Section on Internet and Computer Law welcomes submissions for papers about this clash.

Deadline: Submissions should summarize the paper in roughly 1000 words. To submit, please send the summary by e-mail to Derek Bambauer, <derekbambauer[@]email.arizona.edu>, by September 15, 2016. The members of the section’s executive committee will review the submissions and select presenters by September 28, 2016. Presenters must submit the final version by December 1, 2016. The committee will give preference to works in progress and projects; recently accepted or published pieces are also welcomed.
