Eversheds Sutherland has identified key takeaways from its special forum titled Transportation Disrupted: Artificial Intelligence in the Driver’s Seat. Among those findings include:
- Allocation of liability among the stakeholders in the automated vehicle space will focus on design defects, software licensing disputes and the safety of the algorithms generated by artificial intelligence
- There is a shift already occurring in the insurance space by which rates are now being set based on how one drives; insurers may decide to provide discounts to drivers who drive with cars in an autonomous mode
- Patent filings show an extraordinarily diverse marketplace; no one original equipment manufacturer or software supplier dominates the automated car industry as of yet
This publication discusses these and other key takeaways for further discussion throughout the industry.
