Saunderson House200The Greek debt crisis deteriorated further at the weekend. Not only did talks between Greece and its creditors break down without agreement but the Greek government also announced a referendum (to be held on Sunday 5 July) to consult the electorate on whether to accept the bailout terms offered by the EU.
This step effectively ended all negotiations as the Greek government is no longer in a position to sign any agreement in advance of the referendum results.

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.
