Short information film about the MOOC course AI and Law

This course is a MOOC course offered on the platform Coursera. The course requires approximately four weeks of part-time studies. The course aims to provide participants with an elementary understanding of how artificial intelligence (AI) impacts different areas of society and law. The course covers a wide array of topics, ranging from the basics of AI hardware and software to how AI can be used within different areas of law and what legal questions this usage may raise.

The course is developed specifically to inform members of the general public in what way the increasing use of artificially intelligent technologies affects the practice and administration of law defined in a broad sense. The course aims to equip members of the general public with an elementary ability to understand the meaningful potential of AI for their own lives. The course also aims to enable an understanding for the consequences of using AI and the challenges that this usage may bring in the future.

Subject matters discussed include the connection between AI and Law in the context of legal responsibility, law-making, law-enforcing, criminal law, the medical sector and intellectual property law. The main goal of the course is to equip the participant with an elementary ability to understand the meaningful potential of AI on an individual and societal level.

The course is universal and useful to persons outside both Sweden and the European Union. Prior knowledge of law is an advantage, but not a prerequisite. The same applies for prior knowledge of technology and artificial intelligence. The first module of the course provides participants with an overview of the phenomena AI and explains what an artificially intelligent programme is and how law relates to these programmes.
