Do we need more laws to respond to AI? #digitalcitizens

Interesting discussion at the Digital Citizens Conference: do we need new laws, bills of rights, etc. to respond to the concerns around privacy, manipulation, surveillance, and profiling?

These could be things like “Bills of Rights” for understanding you are being ‘nudged’ (ala Cass Sunstein’s proposal), or legislation to address risk assessment profiling.

Or, should we be finding new ways to leverage our existing rights systems and liberal democratic values in the development of the tech systems while they are being built?

This would mean having more lawyers, ethicists, and people literate in these rights and values as part of tech product teams.

It also means that policymakers and legal professionals would be creative in how they adapt existing law and norms to this new AI / data reality.
