9 August 2013


PSG announced a major enhancement to it’s on-line mapping tool in PSG Connect.

The enhancement now enables users of the state-of-the-art search ordering platform to automatically select a boundary (Flood Fill), negating the need for manual manipulation of the drawing tool. The enhancement also allows users to select an additional plot, of particular use for a transaction that includes property, such as a garage, or land that may not be located adjacent to the main plot.

PSG’s Operations Director, Adele Sagar, explained why they had made the improvements to the mapping system, “We are constantly listening to our clients feedback to find ways in which we can make their lives easier. One comment we were getting quite frequently was about the time it could take to manually plot a boundary within our mapping facility and the occasional need to identify an additional plot associated with the transaction. Our IT team have worked hard over recent months to deliver a much improved facility that addresses these points. We are really pleased with the end result”.

The improved plotting functionality follows on from recent additions and enhancements to the Search Alerts feature of PSG Connect.

PSG Search Alerts identify areas which may be affected by:

  • Flooding (both Fluvial and Pluvial) – ENHANCED
  • Ground Stability – NEW
  • Energy Exploration (Fracking) – NEW
  • High Speed Rail (HS2)
  • Coal Mining
  • Metaliferous Mining
  • Radon Gas

Stephen Murray, Business Development Director added, “PSG recognises the more we can do to assist our clients beyond just providing searches and supporting them in their day to day work demonstrates our commitment and aim to be seen as a partner rather than just a supplier. These new and enhanced facilities are just a part of that”.

Algorithms and the law

Jeremy Barnett

Our aim is to start a discussion in the legal profession on the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. In a longer paper, we consider whether algorithms should have a legal personality, an issue which will likely provoke an intense debate between those who believe in regulation and those who believe that ‘code is law’. In law, companies have the rights and obligations of a person. Algorithms are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is legally considered to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasingly require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and status in law.
