A New Rule of Law: Social intelligence, open rights
Monday, 15 June 2015 15:53


Explore the legal and ethical challenges of regulating the contemporary societies that emerged when Big Data encountered Web 3.0.

Event Home Page


With the growth of the Internet of Things and Smart Cities, our world will soon be managed and possibly ruled almost automatically. How can we regulate a world that is no longer simply local or global, but informational, framed on automatically generated data that mechanically produces more data in iterative cycles? What sort of order will emerge? And with social intelligence – the common cognitive base for humans and computers – fostering agency in Multi-Agent Systems, how will we define what is and is not human? How will law, governance and regulations work in this new hybrid world?
