1h 4m

Created on June 29, 2018




As the prevalence of the use of artificial intelligence-powered physical and virtual robots ("bots") that can communicate in human language with or on behalf of people and companies rises, so too will issues of speech rights and restrictions rise to the forefront. Consumers speak and write to bots on a daily basis, ranging from the usage of robo-advisors to e-commerce bots. Companies use bots to keep the public informed and communicate with its customers. Governments use bots to provide better customer service.
