Estonia wants to give robots legal recognition


Estonia is the country which trying to stay ahead of launching new technologies and to be one of the trailblazers in regulating robotics.

The nation’s economy ministry is working on legislation that would address the status of artificial intelligence in legal disputes.

One proposal under consideration would create the term “robot-agent”, which would be somewhere between having a separate legal personality and an object that is someone else’s property.

While increased automation is presenting many countries around the world with regulatory issues, including rules for self-driving cars and drones, Estonia has been embracing new digital technologies at a faster rate than most others.

Lawmakers at the European Parliament adopted a resolution in February urging the European Commission to consider legislation and potential special status for robots, such as self-driving vehicles, to establish who is liable for damages they may potentially inflict.
