When AI makes a bad decision, who's legally responsible? Lisa R. Lifshitz speaks to CBC about how these legal issues might apply in Canada
A Hong Kong billionaire, an investment manager, and a money managing supercomputer called K1 – what could go wrong?
K1 was designed to comb through online sources to make stock market predictions and execute trades, adjusting its strategy over time based on machine-learning.
But after a billionaire tycoon entrusted a large amount of money to the artificial intelligence system, he faced some very real losses — including $20 million in a single day.
The billionaire now suing the salesman who persuaded him to entrust his fortune to a robot. The lawsuit – one of the first over AI triggered stock market losses – raises many questions about the legal implications of AI.
