Tort and product liability for damage caused by an AI system are recurring issues in many supra- and national policy documents. The proper allocation of liability is challenging due to an AI system’s characteristics (e.g. opacity and autonomy) as well as due to the involvement of many actors in the AI supply chain. With this short interactive course, doctoral students will become informed of the most pressing (legal) issues when it comes to determining who can and should be held liable for damage caused by AI from an extra-contractual liability perspective. The course will take into account evolutions at the EU level and illustrate how the application of certain (national) legal concepts (e.g. product, defect, fault,) may become challenging in AI era.
