Internet law defined the vanguard of cyberlaw issues in the late 1990s and early 2000s, but Ryan Calo argues that the next wave of legal showdowns will relate to robotics, which have an altogether different set of essential qualities when compared with the Internet. Robotics blurs the line between people and instruments. More so than any other technology in history, robots feel to us like social actors. “Robotics combines, arguably for the first time, the promiscuity of information with the capacity to do real harm,” said Calo at the conference.
