Product description

This book brings together thought leaders who bring different subject field lenses to legal questions raised by the rapid deployment of AI in Africa.

Collectively the contributors examine national, sub-regional and regional frameworks regulating artificial intelligence. It is becoming increasingly difficult to consider human flourishing without considering the impact of artificial intelligence in all spheres of human endeavour. These spheres range from employment contexts to agriculture and climate-change adaptation technologies.

As we see regulators across the world attempt to regulate artificial intelligence, through legislation such as the Artificial Intelligence Act of the European Union, African states are mooting how to best approach regulation. This volume provides insight into critical legal questions and suggests appropriate approaches.
