CompuLaw: Computable Law

CompuLaw: Computable Law

Legal protection in the era of infosphere
The increasing proliferation of data is raising some ethical and philosophical questions regarding the impact of data on society. Until now, there are no adequate law and legal instruments to rule the 'hybrid infosphere': the huge and increasingly pervasive, autonomous and intelligent computational entities transforming almost every dimension of social life. These computations are so large, fast and ubiquitous that it is impossible for humans to monitor them and anticipate all possible illegal behaviours. The EU-funded CompuLaw project proposes to make law computation-oriented. The goal is to integrate, map and partially translate legal and ethical requirements into computable representations of legal knowledge and reasoning. Computational law will help society move more smoothly into a newly-created digital space.
