Book Talk with Prof. Frank Pasquale – New Laws of Robotics

A Conversation with Author Frank Pasquale
Professor of Law, Brooklyn Law School

About the Book
Frank Pasquale's book New Laws of Robotics (Harvard University Press 2020) makes three main arguments about artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics in health care law and policy. The first is empirical: right now, AI and robotics most often complement, rather than replace, the labor of health care providers. The second proposes a value: in many areas, we should maintain this status quo. And the final point is a political judgment: our institutions of governance are actually capable of achieving exactly that outcome, via maintenance or adjustment of rules on malpractice, contract, and reimbursement. At this book talk, Pasquale will apply these ideas in the context of radiology, dermatology, and mental health apps. Experts will respond.

This program will be an hour and a half Zoom discussion with ample opportunity for audience questions.
