From Alexa to the development of robots, to autonomous cars to smart phones, smart homes and smart cities, artificial intelligence (AI) is already transforming lives around the globe. AI is expected to continue to evolve in areas like transportation, entertainment, health care, finance, communication, education, and security, to name a few. In fact, according to a PwC study, by 2030, AI will lead to an estimated $15.7 trillion, or 26% increase, in global GDP.

Despite the benefits offered by AI, there are already growing concerns surrounding AI and its impact on privacy, transparency, inclusion, and the accuracy of data – Deep fakes, misinformation, ‘fake news’ and misuse of personal data are just some of the challenges related to AI that have surfaced over the past few years. The expansion of lethal autonomous weapons systems and the ethical considerations related to their use adds another layer of complexity in a world with AI.

Is the world ready for this continued evolution in technology? What ethical and legal challenges have and will continue to arise as we continue to integrate AI into our daily lives? What can we do? What should we do?
