COMPULAW addresses the regulation of computations (processes and systems) through an innovative legal & technological framework: it provides epistemic, technical and normative guidance for the development of computable laws and law compliant computations.
It will provide major methodological and substantive breakthroughs. On the one hand, it proposes a socio-technical methodology for regulatory design and evaluation, integrating three disciplinary clusters: a social-legal one, a philosophical-logical one and a computing-AI one. On the other hand, it develops a framework including: (a) norms, legal values and principles for developers, deployers and users; (b) languages and methods to specify requirements of computations and norms directed to them; (c) cognitive architectures for legally responsive computational agents.
Case-studies include autonomous vehicles and e-commerce agents.
