The Global Legal Post today launches a comparative jurisdictional legal guide to the fast-moving field of artificial intelligence (AI) featuring contributions from leading specialists from across the world. 

The online and print version of the Artificial Intelligence guide, under the Law Over Borders brand, is edited by John Buyers, head of Osborne Clarke’s international AI service line and adviser to the UK Parliament's All Party Parliamentary Group on Artificial Intelligence.

This first edition provides answers and insight on how to integrate AI into business operations, whilst working within the relevant law and guidelines in key jurisdictions around the world. It also offers horizon-scanning guidance on how national AI laws and regulations are likely to develop in the future.

‘Nations stand at an inflection point between addressing concerns with the technology (which may not be relevant given the current state of the art), and encouraging investment in developing and refining AI further to provide economic growth,’ Buyers writes in the introduction.

‘Great efforts are being expended currently by a spectrum of vested interests to either increase standards of regulation, reduce them, or even remove them altogether.

The guide has sections on constitutional law and fundamental human rights; IP; data; bias and discrimination; trade, anti-trust and competition; and domestic legislative developments. There is also a chapter on the EU, which examines its bid to set the benchmark for a ‘third way’ alternative to the very different approaches of the US and China. 

The easy-to-use digital format allows readers to quickly assess the regulatory frameworks of different jurisdictions by comparing contributing authors’ answers to a series of carefully framed questions.  

Contributing firms include: Corrs Chambers Westgarth, bpv Hügel, McCarthy Tétrault, GreenGate Partners, Mayer Brown, William Fry, Kennedy Van der Laan and Morgan Lewis & Bockius.

The print version of the guide will be launched on 2 November at the Luxury Law Summit Americas in New York, which is hosted by GLP, when Buyers will lead a workshop on the legal implications of the sector's deployment of AI solutions with guide contributor Charles Morgan, national co-leader of McCarthy Tétrault’s Cyber/Data Group.

The guide is the fourth in the Law Over Border series, following the launches of guides to Luxury Law, Fashion Law and Anti-counterfeiting. Forthcoming guides include: ESG, Private Client Family Asset Protection, Global Trade, Arbitration and Commercial Litigation.
