The Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School is a leader in the study of the law and policy around the Internet and other emerging technologies.
"However, in cases in which the autonomous vehicle is at fault, the manufacturer is likely to shoulder the responsibility, said Bryant Walker Smith, a University of South Carolina law professor who specializes in self-driving vehicles.
Walker Smith said: "A person injured by a test vehicle associated with a major developer like Waymo is probably better off than a person injured by an ordinary vehicle, because these developers will have deeper pockets and broader reputational interests than an ordinary driver.""
"This raw data fed into video analytics systems is itself captured and created by the police, said Elizabeth Joh, a law professor and policing expert at the University of California, Davis. “If you think about it,” she said, “some of the factors that algorithms use are products of human discretion. Crime reporting, contact cards, and arrest rates are not neutral.
"The European Union legislation on open internet access does not specify if zero-rating is allowed.
Instead, the EU lawmakers decided to leave it to national authorities to determine it on a case-by-case basis.
“They kicked the can down the road,” said Thomas Lohninger, long-time activist involved in getting net neutrality enshrined in EU law."
""It differs in that the victim often wears a fur bikini, but is not otherwise an out-of-the-ordinary dispute over this issue in my opinion," Jennifer Granick, the director of civil liberties at the Stanford Center for Internet and Society, told Ars by e-mail."
Today, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) announced that it would stop some of the surveillance it conducts on the telecommunications backbone under authority granted by section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act.
This week on CounterSpin: FCC chair Ajit Pai has announced his plans to gut net neutrality; the former Verizon lawyer and Jeff Sessions staffer declared his intentions at a private event in DC. So the victory activists fought for—having broadband recognized as a public utility like the telephone, and not some sort of corporate gift—is in jeopardy. What does this mean for all of us who rely on an open internet, and in particular for communities of color, for whom the web’s relatively even playing field is crucial for communication and organizing?
"However, Daphne Keller, the director of intermediary liability at the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society, questions whether machine monitoring is something we should even want to do.
"The idea that we can have an automated machine that can detect what's illegal from what's legal is pretty risky," Keller tells Lynch."
The EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect in the spring of 2018, bringing with it a newly codified version of the “Right to Be Forgotten” (RTBF). Depending how the new law is interpreted, this right could prove broader than the “right to be de-listed” established in 2014’s Google Spain case. It could put even more decisions about the balance between privacy and free expression in the hands of private Internet platforms like Google.
